Adventure to origin!

Kieran is packing his bags heading to Brazil and Peru at the end of this month.

What to pack for this great adventure?

Top 5 Essential items

Hello fellow coffee enthusiasts – Kieran here, Sustainability Specialist at BOCCA! At the end of this month, I will be heading to Brazil & Peru, to visit our partners and farms involved in our True Price project.
For me, the only way to get a true taste of what goes into our coffee is to origin. I will be visiting the farms, where we source our beautiful coffees and speak to the people who make what we do possible. To gain a deeper understanding of the production processes and continue to work on genuinely impactful projects (more on this soon). And, of course, thank our farmers for all their fantastic work!
But first what to pack..

1. Survival bag

I may have been only granted 5 wishes, but the BOCCA survival bag provides unlimited opportunities for any coffee lover on an adventure.

With various compartments to store all your coffee gear and goodies. Compact, robust and elegant this bag will be next to my side during my travels.

Designed with quality in mind, for quality travel. Name a better travel bag, if you dare!

2. Opinel knife x Bocca

The Opinel knife combines the ultimate practical tool with aesthetic beauty (especially when there is a BOCCA logo engraved in the side).

Possibly you’ll need it to slice through a fresh bag of coffee, or an emergency fix for the broken cupping table. Either way, the Opinel knife will always come in handy on a journey.

P.S. Please use this one safely – blade is very sharp!

3. VSSL JAVA Hand Grinder

Ask any coffee nut, it’s all about having a good quality grinder. Which means taking this with you, wherever you go.

The Java hand grinder has a convenient flip lever so it can clip straight onto your bag. In my opinion, one of the best hand grinders around.

Designed for consistent grind size and the coffee geek in mind – this one provides a fantastic end result. The smooth rotation provides a grind sensation like pushing through clean air.

4. Stormproof Jetflame

The stormproof Jetflame has always got your back. These storm-resistant windproof lighters produce a clean flame wherever you are.

Which means whether you are stuck on the road and desperate for a coffee, or need to get that bonfire going after a long day, you are covered. 

Gone are the days of asking around for a lighter, a reliable flame is key on your travels

5. True Price Soulmate

While this is a personal one, I urge anyone to always take their favourite coffee on any trip. 

Visiting Brazil means sharing the beans with our fantastic partners. To share the taste of hard work, and a combined effort towards a quality product.

Working together on our True Price project, this one is definitely going in my bag after a hard day of… well… drinking coffee!
