Iwca to be involved in a whole host of events at Sca Expo, Re:Co Symposium

Must read

BOSTON, USA — In less than three weeks, the coffee community will be gathering in Boston for the much-awaited SCA Expo and Re:Co Symposium. IWCA staff, board, and chapter members are organising the annual breakfast on Saturday, April 9th. Sahra Nguyen, Founder, and CEO of Nguyen Coffee Supply will open the event as Keynote Speaker.

When Sahra noticed that the Vietnamese coffee industry, and more specifically, the robusta bean were excluded from the global coffee conversation she set out to change the narrative.

Join us at the IWCA Breakfast to hear about the challenges and deep-rooted industry preconceptions she faced on her path to bring Vietnamese coffee and robusta beans to mainstream coffee consumers.

Members of the IWCA Global Chapter Network will have informational tables at the breakfast. This will be an excellent opportunity to connect directly with chapter leaders and learn more about the important work being accomplished in coffee communities.

IWCA staff and chapter members are participating in a number of events outside of the breakfast. Here is a comprehensive list.
