the impact of coffee varieties and processing on cupping and roasting

How well do you know coffee?

We know that it becomes complex to integrate the work on the farm like coffee processing, fermentation styles… with your roasting or cupping skills. Many times there is a lack of communication maybe because you do not speak the same language or there are just too many people in between.

When important information is missing, results may be affected

You always want to get the best out of the coffee but if important information from the farm is missing there is a probability that your work will often be based on guessing rather than decisions and you might sacrifice the potential of the coffee much easier.
