Every company has its own specialized figures, including ours. I liked the idea of going to interview leaders of various sectors, experts in the different fields.

In Mokalfor he handles purchases of raw materials, coffee, and so every day he pays attention to stock exchange, quotations and the new realities of the world of coffee.

Q. So these fluctuations in the market are not paid organoleptic changes in the profiles of the coffee itself
