This certified organic coffee is grown by various small producers in the Cusco province of Peru. The typica and caturra varietals are brought to the San Fernando co-operative for processing. Their fully washed process includes an 18-22 hour fermentation in concrete tanks and 8-10 hours of drying on patio. This ultra sweet coffee is accompanied by a wonderfully rich body.

Panda Out

Hey everyone, Panda here. This unfortunately will be my last post for Visions. I’ve recently taken a job as the Head of Coffee with Walter’s Coffee Roastery here in Brooklyn NYC. This past year has been amazing and Visions has been a big part of that. I moved to New York City last June. I moved without a job and jumped into the city feet first. A few days after my move Visions called me up and offered me a job as their Marketing & Brand Manager. Obviously I took it.

This was my first remote job so I was a little nervous about workflow and if I’d feel like I was a part of the team. Lucky for me the entire team at Visions took me in with open arms. Even when we had staff meetings and I attended via Google hangout they made me feel like I was really there. This sense of camaraderie is what makes the Visions team so great!

I was able to attend a lot of amazing coffee events for Visions this year. East Coast Coffee Madness in Montreal, USBC qualifiers in Kansas City, SCAA in Atlanta, and a whole bunch here in NYC are just a few. We also helped support local coffee events like NW Space Agency here in Seattle, TNTNYC, and The League of Lattes in Indiana. We reconnected and forge new relationships along the way.

It has been a pleasure to be a part of a team with such a rich history in the coffee industry. Visions is led by a group of coffee professionals that not only provide the best service but also educate and support the community. It’s going to be hard to leave this team but I’ll always keep in touch.

Hello everyone, Panda here with a photo recap of TNTNYC at City of Saints.

Last week City of Saints in Brooklyn opened up their roastery and cafe space for TNTNYC! A huge crowd gathered for the the free pizza, free beer, and of course latte art. Latte art is pretty amazing but so are the people who show up to these events which is why I decided to low-key shoot a few candid portraits of the crowd. Thanks to all the sponsors and to @newyorkblackcoffee & TNT_NYC for the additional shots.
