In 2005, Michel went on a Max Havelaar ‘fair trade’ trip, and the experience led him to make profound changes in the way he would, in future, buy and sell coffee.
Michel believes that if you travel because of coffee, it also means “accepting to live in the moment, making the most of the experience and not complaining about the bedroom, the bed or the shower”. He illustrates this point by talking about his trip to Ethiopia in 2010.
It took just a weekend in Guatemala, which he visited during his Mexico trip, for Quentin to fall in love with this small central American country, which borders Mexico, Belize, Honduras and Salvador.
An unforgettable journey. A shock, in every sense of the word. A country of tough and ingenious farmers, whose work is supported by Café Liégeois with SOS Faim and Exki.
