Amy, one of our baristas at BBB, recently returned from Brazil where she was lucky enough to spend some time at Fazenda Ambiental Fortazela, a network of farms in Minas Gerias with whom we work very closely. If you cup with us regularly you might remember Felipe who was volunteering at Seeds earlier in the year. Felipe came to visit us through an exhange we set up FAF, and we sent Amy over as our part of the deal. No doubt she has come back with a lot of new knowledge she’ll be sharing with the roasters and baristas here. She’ll post about her experience here as well so keep a look out.
