At Vega Coffee, our mission is pretty straightforward: connect coffee farmers and coffee drinkers more directly. In doing so, we aim to increase the educational and financial wealth of coffee farmers, while delivering truly excellent coffee to customers. We equip our farmers with the technology and know-how to move beyond purely cultivating and selling an unprocessed commodity to participating in the additional steps of the coffee supply chain where the majority of financial value is captured— roasting, sorting, packaging—to become true “seed-to-cup” coffee professionals.
We launched the Experts in Residence program in Fall 2016 to deepen this education through the exchange of skills, ideas, and culture across the coffee supply chain. We connect downstream coffee professionals in the specialty coffee sector with our farmer roaster team through a series of in-country trainings and seminars.
Whether you’re an expert at slinging espresso shots, evaluating the subtlest of coffee flavor attributes, or crafting optimum roast curves, we want to connect and collaborate with you!
A barista, roaster, café manager, or similar professional coffee enthusiast with a desire to deepen your connection to your craft by meeting the people and place where this magical bean is produced. Bonus points for having a broad social media following!
