Let's Talk Coffee 2013
Navigating the Future, Embracing Change.
Welcome to Let's Talk Coffee—specialty coffee's premier conference and training event hosted by Sustainable Harvest Coffee Importers. Every October, we come together with our partners for an open and transparent weekend, where we add fresh insights to the conversation, examine how to bring the sustainability of the industry to scale, and celebrate the strong network of partners that we have created over 15 years working in specialty coffee.
Let's Talk Coffee is a hallmark event highlighting the power of Sustainable Harvest's Relationship Coffee model. By fostering direct conversations among coffee industry partners, we cultivate a community of trust that results in higher quality coffee and reliability throughout the supply chain. Each year, participants discuss and debate pressing issues and challenges, taste and calibrate coffee quality and dive into hands-on trainings and workshops together.
Let's Talk Coffee is a chance for producers and roasters alike to learn about the latest innovations in the industry and in business. Experts from around the world share cutting-edge ideas in financing and traceability, business models, technology, exemplary quality, and best practices among coffee suppliers from Latin America, Africa and Asia.
The relationships built at Let's Talk Coffee allow for all of our stakeholders to grow in their businesses together. It is a chance for industry peers to collaborate and determine best practices for maintaining sustainable business relationships as market opportunities grow and change. In its 10th year, the exponential growth of the event and the success of its participants has proven its relevance for our stakeholders.
Let's Talk Coffee 2013
Four Days of Opportunity
The 11th annual Let's Talk Coffee will be held at the Royal Decameron in Salinitas, on El Salvador’s Pacific coast. More than 500 participants will join us from all over the world, representing every step in the specialty coffee supply chain, from coffee producers and grower organizations to roasters, financiers, NGOs and more.
This year’s theme is Navigating the Future, Embracing Change. We’ll be focusing on the power of collective action to guide us through the ups and downs of the international coffee market. How can everyone, from the farmer to the consumer, work together to embrace the future? We’ll tap into a broad range of experts, like leaders in cooperative structure and the brightest minds in design innovation. Over the course of four days, participants will attend discussions, workshops, and field trips--a hands-on experience that is the basis for the continued unity and success of our industry.
Let's Talk Coffee could not be possible without the help of sponsors.
