Pics from Ethiopia: Cupping Caravan 2010

Stockton Graham & Co.’s Green Coffee Buyer and Roastmaster Brandon Riggs attended the 2010 Ethiopian Cupping Caravan through the Harrar region. He was one of 12 international coffee buyers to meet with the farmers and producers of some of the world’s best coffees. It was designed to benefit the buyers and producers to exchange information about what the buyers are looking for in a cup and to understand how farmers impact the cup quality.

The ultimate goal of this 2010 Cupping Caravan is to improve communications and understanding of the coffees to ultimately result in higher quality for the consumer and higher prices for the farmers.

We were honored to have Brandon participate in this endeavor to encourage relationships between Stockton Graham & Co. and Ethiopian farmers to provide great coffees to our customers.
