EVENT DATE: Oct 13, 2016
DEADLINE TO GIVE: Sep 16, 2016
Coffee undergoes quite a journey between plant and cup. Let’s Talk Coffee® strives to unite all those involved in the process to share their experiences, ideas, and products in a collaborative environment. At Let’s Talk Coffee®, attendees have the unique opportunity to recognize producer excellence, taste excellent coffees, and calibrate as a supply chain.
Including the producer's voice in the conversation plays a crucial role in innovation and problem-solving within the industry. This year we are crowdfunding scholarships to support coffee farmers’ trips to the event. Donations to this campaign will go directly to the growers in the form of transportation, registration, and lodging. For coffee producers, attending Let’s Talk Coffee® means building relationships with the roasters who purchase and process their coffee, and collaborating with people throughout the supply chain to brainstorm solutions to the industry’s most pressing challenges.
The total a farmer needs to raise to participate in this life-changing experience is $2,250.
