I am a long term expat who lives and works in Africa. I have spent a long career in the wonderful world of coffee trading, where I am currently the Global Head of Sustainability for Swiss based trading firm SUCAFINA S.A.

Coffee is a wonderful commodity - you can touch it, smell it, taste it, and I get to follow it from the tree to (almost) the cup, through every stage of its transformation. Moreover it's a crop that is gown by people - 12 million of them around the world - whose stories are intrinsically linked with the product.
