This initiative is designed to create a link between the green bean buyers and roasters. In many cases it is quite difficult to meet face to face due to the size of the United States / Canada and roasters are only getting to choose from the coffees that are sent to them as samples. It will also include a cupping session / buying show whereby roasters can cup a broad spectrum of origins and make purchasing decisions.
Everyone is invited and this event is FREE to attend.
