Dear Coffee Buyer by Ryan Brown is the first ever book dedicated to the profession of green coffee buying.
Brown’s vivid descriptions and engaging prose make readers feel like they’re right there with him: tagging along to taste hundreds of coffee samples during a twenty-hour stop in Guatemala, feeling his nervous excitement when he takes a spontaneous buying trip to Honduras with little more than a backpack, and sharing his frustration and determination to find farmers and exporters willing to offer exceptional coffees.
Dear Coffee Buyer will change the way a generation of baristas, roasters, and green buyers views ‘direct trade,’ seasonality, the Geisha variety, and the complex challenges of getting beans halfway around the world, from the farm to the cup.
