About 33 producers showed up for the rainy day community meeting. As always, we discussed producers' perspectives on the current year's harvest. In general, the cooperative saw lower volumes this year due to the same leaf rust that we've seen impact other producers. However, they were able to maintain their quality level. When Kim and I visited at the end of January of this year, there were many conversations about the cupping process and how quality is assessed. In general, many producers had a lack of trust surrounding whether the scores that Cenfrocafe was giving were the same as what Counter Culture was giving. In previous years, Counter Culture, based on a history of trust and calibration, had left cupping to Cenfrocafe. To assuage and acknowledge producers' doubts, however, this year we cupped through their coffees, as well. And, we were pleased to share with them and Cenfrocafe that our scores remained on par with Cenfrocafe – i.e. the scores we provided lined up with what Cenfrocafe had acknowledged were the higher quality coffees. We feel confident moving forward both in the ability of Cenfrocafe to do these cuppings and in the continued fostering of trust of the cupping process at the producer level.
