Starters Guide for the 4Ps of The Coffee Quest: People, Product, Price, Planet

Hello Coffee Friend,

The Coffee Quest is continously working on gathering more dynamic information about our network of farmers. Industry standard for specialty coffee includes basic background information on the producer, as well as quality-related variables such as; Altitude, Variety and Processing Methods. All of this is relevant information, but often the context missing to truly understand more. Our aim to is tell complex stories, in a way that everybody understands!

To do so we have chosen 4 categories for storytelling: People, Product, Price and Planet. This will you as a coffee roaster to focus on aspects important in you organization. Each farm, group or washing station will receive their own starting blog post, which we will update each season. This will allow us to link in interesting write-up by our team members around the world. For example: Did you purchase a lot from our Giraldo station in Antioquia? Than you will find a link in the product sheet about how The Coffee Quest Colombia set’s local prices!
