The Coffee Process


Growing coffee is a painstaking process, and it takes years from planting a coffee seed to yielding a harvest. Scroll over the images below to learn about the many steps involved in processing coffee and producing the perfect cup. If you'd like to get a more hands-on understanding, we offer tours where you can see each step of the process in person. Additional week-long volunteer opportunities allow you to participate in the harvesting and processing first-hand.
