Green Coffee Packaging with Fabricio Andrade

What is the difference between jute and burlap? How long will our coffee stay fresh in grain pro? Is vacuum sealing worth the cost?

Join us at the Little City Lab on Wednesday, August 21 at 10:00 for a very special talk with Fabricio Andrade of Sancoffee Brazil to discuss green coffee transport and storage, his extensive research on the subject, and what the future holds for coffee packaging technology. 

Fabricio is the director of operations at Sancoffee, a cooperative and coffee exporter located in Santo Antonio do Amparo in the South of Minas Gerais state. A partner and close friend, we have worked with Fabricio sourcing and importing coffees for Little City and our sister company, Casa Brasil, for nearly a decade. Our founder, Joel Shuler, was lucky enough to have participated on the sensory panel for Fabricio’s PhD research that led to the creation of a new, lower-cost high barrier coffee bag.
