X Collaboration

X Collaboration

Collaboration, can genuinely make ventures better.  With the aim of seeing out a shared vision the process becomes about relationship, humility, combined creativity and determination.

VBCO collaboration with Little Boat Espresso founder, Sara Dillon has been all these things. 

Working with someone who is passionate about contributing towards innovation in the form of great food + creating an amazing customer experience was an exciting prospect and a worthwhile pursuit.

We are stoked to be part of a growing community that is working together to see shared visions come to be.

After 8 months of partnership at Little Boat Espresso and opening a second shop with Sara Dillon (x Winnie), we are firm on collaboration.

Enjoy.

Collaboration + Rwanda Farming

Collaboration + Rwanda Farming

The quality of the green in Rwanda is getting better and better. Traditionally Africa is a challenging place to get good quality traceable green, but we love Rwandan coffee for it's intreging complexity and fruity depth.

The coffee industry of Rwanda has become instrumental in providing employment for farmers, pickers + cuppers. 

This Rwandan from Shangi Washing Station, which is a co-operative of about 137 farms is responsible for #1 2013 Cup of Excellence. This season brings some delicious rich red berry flavours to the cup with citrus acidity and floral aromas.

Innovation is vary rarely found in isolation but is the result of community, collaboration and the evolution of ideas over time. 

There have been some incredible innovations in the specialty coffee industry over the last 18months.
We wanted to take the opportunity to showcase some of these in a trade-show format. We were stoked to have so many inventors, innovators + creators in one space.
