Speakers Announced for Micro Coffee Festival: Brazil


It’s just a few weeks until the Perfect Daily Grind Micro Coffee Festival: Brazil, and we’re thrilled to announce our line-up of world-renowned speakers. Presenters are travelling from as far afield as Asia and Europe to provide a global perspective on the entire specialty coffee industry, from production through to consumption.

We’ve set out to provide an inclusive platform for discussion, and so our speakers include coffee farmers as well as buyers, and are nearly 50% female.

We’re also providing perspectives from other specialty industries, with Dr. Carla Martin, Founder and Executive Director of the Fine Cacao and Chocolate Institute, teaming up with Anthony Rue of Volta Coffee, Tea, & Chocolate to discuss cacao.
