I write this having just waved off our visiting Canadian coffee roasters at the airport.  It was an incredible, inspiring week and a wonderful way to wrap up my volunteer mandate.  Stay tuned for a full report! 

Unbelievably, I now have a little over ONE WEEK remaining in Bolivia…these seven months have flown by!

  1. It sure has flown by, Joni. So glad you’ve had a good week to finish off an amazing 7 months. WELL DONE! We’re very proud of you.

  2. One of the best coffee origin trip I have been..even ended up secure a contract for my Bolivian Coffee supply next year!! I couldn’t have done it without your help.

    I will continue to build relationship with Coaine for many years to come.

    Kam Sia!!!

    • Thanks so much, Lay Yong! That is quite the accolade. So glad that you decided to begin a direct trade relationship with COAINE. It was a pleasure to host you, you are a veritable encyclopaedia of coffee knowledge! (Hmm, I can’t recall how to say ‘you’re welcome’ in Hokkien…help please, mum!)

      • The usual reply to ‘kam sia’ is ‘bay iau keen’ which is more like ‘never mind’ as opposed to ‘you’re welcome’.
