The morning will feature a producer fair, with coffee tastings from organizations in Brazil, Nicaragua, Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador. In the afternoon, two quality cupping sessions will be led by local specialty coffee roasters and merchants, 32Cup.

Presentations from our El Salvador and Indonesia teams will underscore the importance of cooperative development for the livelihoods of farmers as well as for the quality of product at the consumer end and an important key to fair trade.
