I am leaving for Jamaican on a sort of self-made service trip on friday and will be in Magadee(spelling?) Bay for ten days.  It's not really a dedicated origin trip.  But as a Barista and just-beginning roaster for my shop, I am curious about how I could use this to learn about coffee.  Does anyone have any advice or contacts for farms, mills, exporters, cupping labs, etc.  that would tolerate a visitor or even give a tour?  It seems like there must be some sort of opportunity for this, though I don't want it to be too touristy... Thanks.

James,

Check with the Jamaican Coffee Board. http://www.ciboj.org/cib/

They are very friendly and can direct you to points of interest, farms, processing facilities and such.

I will send you an email address of a coffee farmer friend privately.

Joachim
