From June 7 to 9, our Roasters Services had the opportunity to personally meet our roasters and taste the coffees they offer. The visit was divided into several days that served to get to know first hand those who offer our product.

Day 1: Warsaw

The first day they visited Gorilla Coffee. With Pawel, the owner of the company, they talked about the coffee industry in Poland and the most important challenges we need to face. Pawel gave us a warm welcome with his delicious ice cream and coffee.

The second stop was Coffeelab, a roastery that is also dedicated to the sale of coffee and coffee training. At Coffeelab they did a tasting of coffees from the Terra and Mare Terra Range. Constellations and Mare Terra coffees. During the cupping they tasted different coffees such as: Copanti – organic coffee from Honduras, Tata Nahual from Guatemala and Salomon from Ethiopia. In addition, we tasted natural coffees from Colombia – Almeisan C ABFdB and Ni 1225 ACPdA.

It was an occasion to present our samples of Africa coffees in pre-shipment – Elkurud ALIC and Shishimai ALC.

The Coffeelab team and Bartosz from ROST Warsaw gave us very positive feedback and it has been the start to start working together.
