This year's Roasters Forum presents a host of inspiring and educative sessions designed to equip roasters and coffee professionals with tools to traverse today's complex market conditions, including pressing issues in sustainability and emerging supply chain trends.
Curated by Sucafina Specialty, the extended two-day line-up will offer attendees a chance to speak to industry innovators driving coffee forward: from farmers transforming production through to sustainability thought- leaders in a new format that includes a series of lectures, panel discussions and workshops.
From whole-harvest sourcing to sponsoring roaster events, Sucafina believes the way forward is together and is proud to support producers and roasters across the supply chain. They are thrilled to help deliver programming at Caffè Culture that supports the success of the UK's coffee community and beyond.
