Just Back from Mexico

A group of employees from GMCR and Keurig. Inc., just got back from a trip to Mexico on an “Origin Trip”. Each year we send 3 different groups of employees to coffee producing countries to learn about coffee, meet coffee farmers, and do some sightseeing. Started in 1993, we’ve sent employees ever since and now we’re up to three trips per year – one to Mexico, one to Nicaragua, and one to Guatemala. Over 18% of employees have been on one of these memorable source trips. I got to go to origin in 1996 to a small farm in Costa Rica with 8 fellow employees and had an amazing time. Now I get to bring a different group of employees to Mexico and it’s one the funnest parts of my job. We made a photo album of the trip and logged the trip on Google Maps. Try some coffee from the coops we visited – Huatusco, Finca Triunfo Verde and Cesmach. Enjoy!
