Event Details


Join us for our next Knowledge Talks series with Stephen Leighton, Managing Director of Has Bean Coffee!

Stephen will present on ‘What happens at origin - the human aspect of coffee and what’s important to the farmers.'

He’ll dive into the complex relationship with producers around the world and having spent 18 years building Has Bean Coffee, Stephen has spent most of his time building relationships with the people who make specialty coffee possible: the producers.

Stephen will also uncover the romance and myth of being a green bean buyer and the challenges faced every day.

Oh and did we mention that he also penned his first book?! He’ll be featuring his book ‘Coffeeography - The Producers’ throughout his talk.

About Stephen Leighton:

Intrigued by coffee at the young age of seven, Stephen first opened Has Bean’s doors in 1999 and its online doors in 2003, where it continues to be at the forefront of the web age of coffee.

Stephen works directly with over 30 of the most incredible coffee producers in the world to build long terms partnerships that allow Has Bean to source better coffee for projects and customers. He also invests in experimentation to understand what quality is possible in a given soil or region through improved science, processes, agronomy and support.

Not one for sleeping, Stephen is also the co-creator of Tamper Tantrum (a platform for his constant bickering and brainstorming with Colin Harmon), co-owner of 3FE in Dublin, and co-owner of Drop Coffee in Stockholm.
