From Winemaker to Coffee Processing Specialist.

Meet Lucia Solis

I studied Viticulture and Enology at UC Davis and trained as a winemaker in the Napa Valley. Today, I am a fermentation and coffee processing specialist and lapsed Q-grader with years of experience working with coffee producers throughout Latin America.

I challenge coffee producers to see processing as an opportunity to add value, instead of the traditional approach that stops at reducing risk.

I use microbes to create reproducible flavor profiles and provide stability to an extremely variable process.

The people you meet can have the biggest influence.
