It takes more than you think to make a cup of coffee

Coffee is one of the world's favourite drinks with over 500 billion cups being consumed everyday, its never been more popular and there have never been more ways to drink coffee; lattes, frappucinos, drip, cold brew, and of course espresso to name a few. But what does it take to make a cup of coffee? To start with, there are seven stages that form the coffee making process, from 'bean to cup': PickingWashingDryingSortingGradingRoastingTasting.

 

At each of these stages there are specially-trained people, each with their own expertise, who play an important role in coffee's production. Coffee impacts so many people's lives, for many is it a passion but for even more it is the livelihood on which they depend. As part of International Coffee Day 2019, we wanted to share some of the stories of the people at the heart of the coffee value chain. Take a look at some of the videos below to find out how coffee has impacted the lives of those who produce it and check out our 'Did You Know?' page for some amazing facts about coffee's production.
