Talking Java with Frankie Volkema


The Council welcomes the world’s youngest coffee Q grader, 14-year-old Frankie Volkema, to talk about global coffee and what she’s learned about connecting with coffee growers in Burundi and Columbia. Joven, which means “youth” in Spanish, is a brand developed by Volkema to help raise awareness of young farmers in the coffee industry and the steps we can take to create a more sustainable and brighter future, one sip at a time.
