For people involved in the coffee industry, their first trip to origin is an important symbol of their immersion into the world of coffee. For me, it has been about two years since I became a barista and 15 months since I first learned about green coffee buying. Taking this first trip to Colombia was both a culmination of all I had worked for and learned at Iconik, and an introduction to the international community of green coffee buyers, a community with an immeasurable role in the lives of rural workers around the world.
