help needed

Well. Due to the current financial situation, Counter Culture Coffee has decided to eliminate four positions. The Atlanta Sales Rep. was one of those. I'm not angry or bitter. This is business and some hard decisions had to be made.

I am looking for employment in coffee. If you have any leads and would like to share those, I'm all ears. I would like to work with an exporter, importer or roaster. I understand that is more than half of the supply chain, but in these times I need to keep my options open. There is nothing holding me in Atlanta and I'm willing to move.

Coffee Harvest Season

Yup. I just got back from a pre-harvest trip. The coffee is coming in a bit early this year. That picture was taken by Tim Borrego, he knows how to use a camera. We were de-pulping Tuesdays days picking, late on Tuesday afternoon. That hand crank antique is how coffee cherries become muscliage coffee.
