Once coffee is harvested, or better described as, according to what we’ve learned, the cherries are picked, they go through further processing before roasted and sold.
Last week I was in Hamburg and attended the INTERNORGA, one of the most important fair trades the HORECA and food-industries are keen on. In know the INTERNORGA for years now and every time I attend it I’m astonished about enterprises making high outlays to permanently win new customers. It is not only the stands on the fair trade becoming bigger and more sophisticated rather the effort enterprises invest in the search for new solutions and better services. It is obvious that their customers demands rises and rises because the consumer’s demands rises much faster.
Hi folks. I’m glad to be back and go on writing our coffee-story part 3 – the harvesting.
We already know in detail what coffee is and how coffee farming works, the next step is very close related to the farming process, it might be better to say: it is a part of it.
Coffee seeds are planted in large beds in shaded nurseries. The seedlings must be watered and protected from the sunlight until they are robust enough to be permanently planted. The subsequent planting normally takes place during the wet or rainy season because then the soil is quite moist and the roots can grow properly.
What is coffee? You already know it? Lucky guy!
I should know as well because coffee is my job, my profession and my passion. But to be honest there exists so much information about coffee I didn’t know before. So let’s dive deep in the first part of the coffee story and let’s explore the root of coffee.
Only two days left… and then?

we’re all coffee lovers. Therefore we’re all interested in this super delicious heaven’s present.
But do we know a lot about coffee, do we know enough, or are we satisfied with our knowledge? I decided for myself that I want to know more about coffee.
Hey, I’m Dennis and working at MACAFE and LaMacatec.
Once our boss, Angelo Carbone, offered me and one of my colleagues to travel to New York in order to join the New York Coffee Festival. What a joy, I’ve never been to Big Apple before.
