New Everything

Hello world,

Last I posted something it was July and I had just returned from Uganda and Ethiopia. Then I was to start as a Sales Rep for Dallis Bros Coffee. At the end of my training they offered me a job as their Coffee Director to buy green coffee, manage quality control and direct training for the company. Truly my dream job.

So I said yes, moved to Brooklyn, starting commuting to Queens five days a week and generally adjusting to a new everything. I've gone to the Dominican Republic to prep the micro-wet mill for the harvest and to Kenya on a coffee buying trip and also to Texas to participate in the Global Coffee Quality Research Initiative.
So far I love it. I work with genuine real people that I really really enjoy. I work for a company that I believe in, and who has a mission I fully support.

On Finca La Paz, we are on our third picking and the harvest is already past its peak. I plan on heading down there for the usual pruning and export prep trip in late January.

I just felt the need to post this because the next post is more of a rant. I don't know if it is the New York attitude that has seeped into me or the fact that I just disagree so strongly. Regardless I just think it needed to be said.
