New in Coffee is supported by site sponsor 1883 Maison Routin through mid-October.
At launch, Design in Coffee and New in Coffee were exclusively populated with entries from the Design Lab and Best New Product competitions, previously scheduled for the 2020 Specialty Coffee Expo in Portland, Oregon.
