    Lightbulb The Coffee Project with farmers (Asia) - Introduce New Member

    Hello,

    I have been following and reading posts, now I am a member of this forum so I just wanted to say hi and connect with all coffee lovers around the world.

    I am working on a very exciting project that brings the taste of Asia to Canada/North America. Especially I am planning to have an origin trip (coming home) this coming January and hoping to see if anyone interested in joining my journey.

    A little bit about myself, I grew up in a coffee/tea farmer in Vietnam but I have been living in Canada for a while and would be cool to return to the farms. My family has coffee farms in Laos and Vietnam, so I will be visiting both.

    Nothing better than experiencing coffee origin trip with a farmer or having a fresh coffee cup in the morning directly from the beans. If you are a coffee lover that interested in joining my journey or looking to know more about my coffee project, leave a comment and let's connect, I am so excited! I believe I have enough knowledge to share with you. If not, it is great to learn more.

    hi Pham.
    welcome to our forum.
    great to have another coffee farmer as our forum member.
    would you explain in more detail exactly what you would be doing during your coffee journey?
    what are your plans?
    thanks and hope to hear from you.

    Hello Ensolune,

    I am going to visit the farms and to ensure that only good quality beans are imported. I don't have any specific plans, I am very open for suggestions on what I would do during the origin. I am new to import/export so I am willing to learn

    I understand that your family has farms in Laos and Vietnam. however, do you have any experience as a green bean buyer?
    do you know how to "cup" to be able to score / grade coffee beans?

    Since I am a specialty / micro lot coffee bean exporter from Guatemala, I have to return to Guatemala by mid Feb to work on our international green bean sales, but actually, I really would love the opportunity to visit Vietnam and Laos. Those are two countries where I have never been in my life.
    If I could, that would be really awesome.
