Origin Education Talk: Coffee Sourcing Philosophy

  • Nossa Familia Coffee 811 Northwest 13th Avenue Portland, OR, 97209 United States (map)

Direct Trade. Fair Trade. Farm Direct. Relationship Coffee. Third Wave Coffee. Sustainable Sourcing.

We hear these terms used a lot in the specialty coffee industry - but what do they really mean? Join us for the next installment of Nossa Familia Coffee’s Origin Education Talks on Coffee Sourcing Philosophy. We’ll discuss our practices and philosophy on sustainable coffee sourcing through deeply-rooted relationships with our farmers and brokers. We’ll also dive into what terms like “direct trade” and “fair trade” really mean in coffee.

This event will be a panel format, and we’re lucky to be joined by some incredible panelists who all bring years of experience and special insight into the coffee trade:
