World of Coffee: Today’s schedule of events in Milan

Must read

MILAN, Italy – World of Coffee (WOC) is Europe’s premier coffee trade show organized by the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) and supported by Host Sponsor BWT water+more is opening today until Saturday in Milan, Milano Convention Center. It’s been three years since the industry was able to connect in-person at World of Coffee and its return is highly anticipated by the community.

World of Coffee trade show was originally scheduled to take place in Warsaw. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine has forced thousands of Ukrainians to seek refuge in Poland, including at the PTAK convention center, where WOC was scheduled to take place.

With the event moving to a new location in Milan, the organisers remain committed to donating 100% of the revenue from ticket sales to Ukrainian coffee businesses and professionals.

This year’s show floor is jam-packed with over 200 of the world’s leading coffee and Horeca industry suppliers showcasing their latest products. The organisers look forward to bringing much-loved, as well as brand-new, show features to Milan, including:

  • Best New Product Competition & Display
  • Coffee Design Awards
  • SCA Lectures and Workshops
  • Cupping Rooms
  • Roaster Village
  • Green Coffee Buyers and Sellers Program – brand new for 2022.

The five World Coffee Championships — Latte Art, Coffee in Good Spirits, Cup Tasters, Cezve/Ibrik, and Roasting—will also be held in Milan, June 23-25.

Coffee professionals from around the globe can look forward to everything Milan has to offer and the hospitality of the local coffee community represented by the SCA Italy Chapter.
