Coffee Studies - The Standardisation of Coffee

Coffee Studies - The Standardisation of Coffee

Taking place on Friday 3rd September

Coffee Studies continues its successful format of borrowing from the TED style presentation coupled with a curated panel to discuss in real terms contrasting and complimentary perspectives of the presented topic. This year, we reflect on the last 18 months of lockdown and its impact on how the industry has responded to global supply chain challenges and evolving perspectives on sustainability. As always coffee studies will focus on real business stories, and challenging the prevailing narratives surrounding Speciality coffee and its position within the framework of global trade.

Roaster's Forum

Roaster's Forum

Taking place on Thursday 2nd September

As the coffee industry reconnects, we find ourselves asking many questions. What changes have we undergone, how do recent events impact coffee today, and what does the future look like for the industry?

This year’s Roaster’s Forum, sponsored by DRWakefield, will explore these ideas of the past, present and future of coffee. Over a series of six engaging talks, presentations and panel discussions, the Roaster’s Forum will examine how trends, innovation, technology and discovery can stimulate change and development in coffee production, sourcing and roasting.

People & Culture

People & Culture

Taking place on Thursday 2nd September

New for this year, our 'People and Culture' programme will highlight a number of crucial conversations to promote a better future for the coffee industry. Cafés act as a 'third space' - a break for so many - and without the passion from its people the industry would lose the strong foundation it's been so long recognised for. Led and curated by The Kore Directive, a community-led non-profit organisation created to challenge convention within the coffee industry, the panel-led discussions will cover a variety of topics. These include equity, inclusion, rights and responsibilities, mental health, and the development of initiatives through coffee.
