From the Source – A Short Film on Coffee Production by Charley Voorhis

Charley Voorhis, who did our cider production video, has just released another incredible piece for Olympia Coffee Roasting Company. Captured during a 10-day trip to multiple sites within Central America, this video captures the process, places and faces involved in bringing incredible coffee from its origin to your cup.

Curious what happens after it's harvested, processed, dried, sorted, and shipped to Olympia? This video should satisfy that curiosity.

As farmers, producers of a full-flavored drink and, let's face it, flavor nerds, there are a multitude of similarities between the approach to making cider and roasting coffee. Both are subject to the forces of nature, climate and terroir. Both are affected by how the fruit is handled after picking. And both are capable of packing a whallop of complex and delicious flavors if handled with care and finesse.
