Paradigm Shift: The Post-Harvest Processing Revolution

Lecture Overview

The current coffee processing revolution offers us means to improve the live of coffee growers and processors not just through direct product improvement, but through a new, powerful narrative that can drive more respect, and value, back to producers. But, says Joel Schuler, it requires a paradigm shift, one we can only make if we ask--and collectively answer--many questions, and a movement towards parity.
