Three Friends Picking Coffee Beans in Guatamala

Trip Highlights

I now have first-hand experience of how the coffee is impacted by who is growing it – how the plants and the land are cared for, and how it's processed. It really struck me how much every person we met was invested in the quality of the coffee and what impact that has at our end in our mission to serve delicious and high-quality products! This trip was truly life–changing!

Jess, Grand Central Bakery

I have been fortunate enough to be able to travel to many countries in my life. I can say unequivocally that this trip was the most profound and life-altering experience that you can only capture when you are immersed completely in another culture and country.
