Artisan Coffee Group Now Offering Consulting

Artisan Coffee Group is pleased to offer our clients professional consulting for roasters. We can provide impact assessment at origin, monitoring and evaluation of programs and consulting to improve the efficiency of your supply chain through our unique “Lean at Origin” strategic process. These services are aimed at roasters who want to increase the productivity and sustainability of their business. Our consulting service uses a data-driven approach supplemented by Ruth Ann's 20 years of business experience and a passion for quality coffee.

What is "Lean at Origin"? It's a belief that producers are small business-people who make the best decisions they can about how to invest their scarce resources. With training, we help them "see" waste in their processes that is otherwise invisible. Through teamwork we improve leadership capabilities of every family member, friend and hired worker. These fundamentals of quality production have been proven over decades by thousands of small, mom & pop machine shops in the automotive industry. Ruth Ann grew up near the Motor City and for 8 years has helped manufacturers to compete better on the global playing field. With research and experience through Michigan State University, these concepts are now taking hold in coffee supply chains around the world.
