Thanks Piero for traveling all the time and maintaining difficult relationships across the globe and all the wonderful staff at Cafe Imports for helping move amazing coffees.

Thank you to those who have started strong pathways for coffee. We want to thank the people who grow and care for the seedlings in nurseries and greenhouses all around the world. Thank you to the pickers who are easily forgotten and paid meager wages to complete an arduous task. We ask that you join us and pay homage to the individuals and organizations seeking a greater level of diversity in coffee from a genomic level, constantly working to foster new varieties that can survive our ever-changing global growing conditions. In the story from bean to cup, there are many hands involved in producing a narrative. We seek to highlight the faces and families behind the moments and seasons that create such a beautiful and complex product. We want to thank the earth for fostering climates that are well suited to the growth of coffee shrubs. We are appreciative of the oceans and winds that share their liveliness and the nutrients they possess with soils all across the equatorial region. We thank the mountains for making slow climbs to high elevations creating unique micro-climates for diversity in growth and quality. We strive to share knowledge and understanding along the chain in order to avoid repeating past faults in coffee progress and development. The landscape of coffee now is the canvas we possess and we are thankful to be involved in an industry where many members are willing to work together to create real change in overall quality of life and quality of product for their fellow participants.
