Coffee Brings Us Together

Having farmers visit us in Vermont is part of our unique approach to sourcing coffee, and one of the ways we develop a deeper relationship with our producer partners. We hold “calibration cuppings” to make sure our palates are aligned and producers know what our customers expect in the cup.

Here, GMCR Coffee Buyer Ed Canty cups coffee with Edgar Blandon, General Manager of a Colombian coffee cooperative called CorpoAgro, based in Tolima. Later, Edgar spied a bag of his coop’s coffee during a tour of our warehouse.  We use Edgar’s coffee beans in a few different coffees, including our Colombian Fair Trade Select in K-Cups and Single Origin Whole Bean.
