LTC TALKSExpert keynotes from Let's Talk Coffee® events around the world
Sustainable Harvest® chose Melbourne as the setting for Let’s Talk Relationship Coffee because of the amazing specialty coffee culture of both the city and of Australia as a whole. Fittingly, the first presentation of the event was an examination of Australia’s cafe culture. Delivered by Prime Creative Media’s Brad Buchanan, this talk covers the country’s barista culture, its fierce independent streak, and much more.
One of Let’s Talk Relationship Coffee’s most compelling presentations was from Javier Dominguez, general manager of the Sol & Cafe cooperative located in Cajamarca, Peru. Javier traveled more than 55 hours from remote Cajamarca to join us at Let’s Talk Relationship Coffee. His organization Sol &; Cafe, which means “Sun and Coffee,” is a 980-member democratic organization of smallholder producers organized into 27 base associations.
