PRF FORUM DATE & TIME: September 14 & 15, 2023, from 9:00 am to 17:00 pm


Created specifically for coffee roasters and green buyers wishing to visit Colombia, the Sourcing Trip Experience (STE) ticket includes a four-day trip to coffee-growing regions of Colombia, followed by the PRF event in the heart of Medellín.

During the STE, visiting roasters and buyers will be able to experience Colombian coffee production first hand, staying with local hosts on coffee farms across Colombia in groups of up to 15. Visitors will visit farms and farmers, participate in cupping sessions, travel to various mills, observe harvesting and processing, and join roundtable discussions with producers.

Following this hosted experience, participants will then travel to Medellín to attend the two-day PRF event.

Your host producer will be confirmed approximately 1 month before the event. Please note: any domestic return flights from Medellín to your host’s farm location (on the 10th & 13th of September) are not included unless the concierge service is selected. See below for more information.

– As your host producer will not be confirmed until 1 month before the event, upon arrival, you may need to buy a domestic return flight from Medellin to your STE Host farm’s location. We offer a concierge service for $225 which covers the cost of any domestic flights, as well as a service fee.

– Once hosts have been selected, we will notify everyone who has purchased an STE ticket and arrange an onboarding call to provide more details (including which airport to fly into).

– We strongly encourage STE attendees to opt for our concierge service. Domestic return flights within Colombia can be found from $100, but the concierge service is hassle-free and helps to avoid any price fluctuations. It also includes one bag (standard bag size of approx. 23kg).

– Anyone who selects the concierge service will need to share passport information and further details for domestic flights with the PRF team.

Initially, international STE attendees will need to fly to Medellín. From here, domestic return flights may be required to your host farm’s region as noted above. The costs for these are only covered if you select the concierge service.

– Please ensure you arrive at the InterContinental Hotel Medellín by 9am on September 10. If your flight arrives later, we recommend arriving on the 9th. Please note: this additional night is not covered in the ticket. The address is: InterContinental Medellín, Calle 16, Variante #28-51, Las Palmas, Medellín, Antioquia, Colombia

– This ticket also includes transport, accommodation & meals (September 10 – 13), farm tours, entrance to the two-day PRF events and more.

– If more than 1 person attends per roastery or coffee company, you will be placed with different hosts in different groups.
