Before reaching the roasting facility, green coffee goes through a long journey characterized by several complex and critical phases.

Transport mode and timing along with processing and storage of coffee may highly influence its final quality. The task of a well-organized and competent company such as ARC is to directly or indirectly monitor and cure as many phases of such a route as possible, in order to assure the best outcome that can be obtained.

In its respective country of origin, the coffee is loaded and transported from the collecting points to the warehouses in order to be processed and stocked. Once ready, the same is moved to the port of shipment and consigned to the sea carrier in charge of its freight to destination.

Upon arrival to destination port, the container is taken in charge by specialized customs forwarders responsible for all the clearing, bureaucracy and sanitary operations required in the importing country.

The container is then opened and once the status of the coffee contained in it is verified, it is stocked in special dedicated storage houses ready to be picked up and transported straight to the roasting facility.

This is broadly speaking the journey of coffee, and while many are the steps and phases it undergoes before reaching the final consumer, it is essential that the same is always treated with care by professionals and experts of the filed.
