Cup a lot is a small company that we cooperate since 2019. They have been in Specialty Coffee since 2001, first starting up a roastery, followed by starting up and running coffee shops, a barista training center and a wholesale activity. Then they got the opportunity to start buying their green coffee at origin, direct from the farmers, and have been doing so since 2009.
What they have been doing for one roastery, they now wanted to offer to roasteries across Europe who are looking for the same added value of Direct Trade - without the hassle.
