Third Wave of Coffee: Learn The Coffee Story

Here’s another tip to help you catch a ride on what is being referred to as “the third wave” of coffee.

Craft coffee is about relationships between farmers, co-ops, importers, roasters and consumers. The coffee's story helps consumers understand what's in their cup.(1) 

Consider adding details of your coffee’s specific story to the merchandising materials on display at your coffee counter, such as a photo of a farm in the growing region or a relevant twist on the name of the blend.
