I should have probably titled this post, “Coffee- The second most traded commodity in the world,” but that’s been done before. Besides, the first blog post in Eximware’s 17 year existence should reflect at least a small part of the company culture and there is not a moment throughout the day that someone in the office isn’t sipping a cup of coffee or brewing a fresh pot. I admit I used to be more concerned with caffeine content than origin or flavor profile but in recent years my palate has developed. With my indoctrination into commodity management, I’ve also developed a deeper respect for all the individuals and companies involved throughout the supply chain of getting the green coffee from the farm to my cup. Here’s to a fresh roast and future fresh posts showing our support of the industries we work with from farm to table and plant to product.
