ExpoEspeciales 2016 will open its doors a day later than expected

BOGOTA, ColombiaThe specialty coffee fair ExpoEspeciales Café de Colombia will open its doors a day later than expected due to logistical issues related to the plebiscite for peace. The plebiscite will be held this Sunday October 2nd and ExpoEspeciales will now take place from October 5th to October 8th in Corferias.

As Latin America’s largest specialty coffee fair, ExpoEspeciales will host a wide range of activities including the first National Coffee Quality Contest: Colombia Land of Diversity, the Colombian Barista Championship, and the National Tasters Championship.

It will bring together coffee growers, baristas, tasters, exporters, input suppliers, coffee shop owners, traders and roasters to celebrate and broadcast the diversity and exceptionality of Colombia’s coffees.

As in previous years, attendees will be in for a treat with ExpoEspeciales’ reputable academic agenda. Some of the issues that will be part of this year’s agenda are the Coffee Genome Project, Profitability Starts at the Coffee Farm, La Niña Phenomenon, Global Coffee Supply and Demand, and Reaching Out to New Generations Regarding Specialty Coffees: Millennials and Coffee Consumption.
