“Good communication is just as stimulating as black coffee, and just as hard to sleep after”
- Anne Morrow Lindbergh -
I was born and raised in Colombia in a coffee grower’s family. From a very young age coffee has been part of my life. Growing up in the very heart of the coffee production in Colombia has allowed me to experience and learn about the whole process from within.

What People Say
“My coffee immersion experience at Jericó and Medellín was very rewarding. Learning first hand what cultivating coffee and then roasting coffee complements my overall knowledge of the industry. The time at the farm was very much hands on. I stayed there and was able to see the varietals grown and learn about them. We discussed the planting and all the care given to the plants, from seedling to maturity. This care includes planting various types of trees to provide shade for the coffee plants, rotation of the parcels, and pest control. I was able to see the coffee berry borer in an infected cherry. The coffee picking experience was a valuable lesson. It is far from easy. It is a skill and a demanding job. I came away with greater appreciation of this part of the seed to cup experience after actually doing it for a good period of time.
I received plenty of in depth roasting instruction as well. One great thing about this part was that it was pretty much all hands on training. The training was thorough and i got to practice roasting several times on the sample roaster as well as the main roaster. This included getting acquainted with Cropster, the roasting software. I felt confident at the end of the week and ready to tackle roasting coffee beans.
In general, I received plenty of detailed instruction all across the board. I was very happy and completely satisfied with the whole experience. Sara and her whole staff are very friendly, approachable, and knowledgeable. The whole experience was fun and I learned a whole lot! Thanks Coffee Translator”.
