It’s almost SCA Expo time, and we have a lot to look forward to this year in Boston. Here’s where you’ll find Ally Coffee during the packed week of all things coffee and community.
This year’s booth will continue our tradition of hosting as many cuppings as time allows! Join us for one or all of the nine public cuppings we will offer in our booth. Producers from Colombia and Central America will be at the show too, so it’s a great opportunity to cup coffee with the people who produced it.Cupping coffees in Seattle at the Ally Coffee booth for SCA Expo 2018.

Join us for a night of game show style fun, with teams representing the diversity of the coffee community. Team Ally Producers is Rodrigo Sanchez of Colombia, Katia Duke of Honduras, and Bram de Hoog, Ally’s Costa Rica-based Central America Buyer.
