In March 2015, the Let’s Talk Relationship Coffee event brought coffee producers from all over the world to Melbourne to share their stories and their coffees. Over three days, attendees tasted coffees, established relationships with producers, and took in top-notch content on topics including the volatile coffee market, the future of coffee production, and new developments in eco-friendly farming techniques.

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.
