As soon as the annual conference ended last July, we began planning for the next. Last year's conference was a big success! Attendees reported leaving with new means to add value to their farm or company, regardless of the size or scope.
We tasted an assortment of defects, learned about the chemical compounds that impact coffee quality, and viewed Greenwell's research on the perceivable effect of Coffee Berry Borer on flavor. Members reconnected with friends from across the islands, met new contacts, and exchanged business cards.
We're confident this year's conference will top the last. We've added presentations to reflect members' interests in quality production, growing trends in marketing, fine-tuning brewing skills, and equipment demonstrations. (View the workshop and presentation list here).
