Premier Global Coffee Advisor

Promoting Quality at Every Stage of Production

Coffea Consulting

Think every drop of coffee is sacred? So do we.

Coffee is more than a beverage. It is significant -- as comfort, as fortification, as a way of coming home in the midst of a complicated world. And coffee is complex, never tasting the same way twice.

Coffea Consulting is a global advisor for improving coffee quality.  We look at the whole people-plant relationship in order to create and modify quality at every stage of the production chain.  Using evidence-based methods, Coffea Consulting meets businesses where they are and provides actionable plans.  

Importantly, Coffea Consulting can advise along the whole coffee supply chain.  Whether that means advising on agricultural best practices, ensuring quality in storage, assessing quality, or providing functional information, we are uniquely placed to help businesses attain the goals they’ve set.  Moreover, because we have both academic and commercial experience, we understand the challenges and risks underlying the achievement of those goals.

Whether your project will take just a moment or several years, Coffea Consulting can help you, your friends, and your customers better understand, experience, and benefit from coffee.
