Profile Information

What is your position in the coffee industry?
coffee grower, coffee enthusiast, supplier
Where are you located? ( City and Country )
San Jose Costa Rica
How many years have you been in the industry?
If you are a barista or shop, are you interested in a barista exchange with another coffee shop/barista?
Tell us more about your coffee shop or barista skills.
We would like to learn about the retail end of coffee, and in exchange baristas can come down to Costa Rica and learn about the cultivation, processing and storage side of the business.
About Me:
Dumped a promising international career to grow and export the best coffees in Costa Rica. Our farm and mill, Cafetin de San Martin, are in the town where I was a Peace Corps volunteer. Twelve years after my PC service, my wife and I have set up business back in the same town, and we buy coffee from our friends and neighbors and mill it right there in town.
About My Company:
From building a boutique micro-mill from scratch to helping launch a next generation boutique coffee exporter for Costa Rica and Panama, Exclusive Coffees. www.exclusivecoffeecr.com. Could not find a truly transparent exporter that was focused on micro-mills, vacuum packaging and full traceability so we had to create it ourselves.
What is your favorite thing about the coffee industry?
All the great coffee characters who grow, roast and brew specialty coffees

Hey...I was just searching for some people and your picture popped up and decided to take a look at your profile. I have a friend Wyce who lives in Los Santos. He mentioned once that he knows coffee growers down there. I was wondering if maybe you know him?

Well, either way, I just wanted to drop a line and say hi.

Take care, Jonathon
