Panel discussion with Ally Coffee and Clearpath Coffee: Infused coffees from producer and consumer perspective

Following the co-fermented coffee cupping on Saturday, join us for a panel discussion exploring infused and co-fermented coffees and their place in the coffee industry. These coffees have sparked conversations and posed questions about the future of coffee processing, and in this panel we’ll hear from professionals throughout the supply chain discussing their experiences and what they envision for the future of this innovation. Panelists will include people representing production, export, import, and roasting, who will share their insights and answer questions from the audience in order to provide a comprehensive view of this novel topic.

The panel Infused coffees from producer and consumer perspective. Are these coffees a good business opportunity or a problem for the industry? Will take place on Saturday, April 22 11:30–12:30 pm in Room B113–114. Then, after the panel, you can taste these coffees and connect with coffee producer Rodrigo Sanchez and exporter Vicente Mejia at the Ally Coffee booth, Booth 1509!

We look forward to seeing you in Portland!
