All of the tricks of the trade will be revealed during a special Coffee Roasting Workshop taking place as part of the 2013 edition of the International Coffee & Tea Festival, the only dedicated trade event for the coffee and tea industry in the Arab world, to be held from October 8 to 11, 2013 at the Meydan Grandstand & Convention Centre in Dubai. The Specialty Coffee Roasting program joins the show’s training syllabus for the first time and is certified by the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA), the world’s largest trade association for specialty coffee. The workshop will share a wealth of experience with café enthusiasts, amateurs and budding professionals and show how the ‘Third Wave of Coffee’ movement currently trending around the world is elevating coffee preparation into a specialty craft. A selection of the SCAA’s top educational programs, including exclusive sessions in coffee grading, cupping and preparation, catering to beginners and professionals alike, will be hosted during the show through an Educational Partnership between SCAA and International Conferences & Exhibitions LLC, the organizer of the International Coffee & Tea Festival. Attendees will be awarded SCAA certificates upon completion of their training. This year’s festival will also feature the United Arab Emirates' (UAE) Barista and Latte Art Championships, which will determine the UAE representative to the 2014 World Barista Championships, a ‘Taste Tea Zone’ dedicated purely to tea, and an ‘Espresso & Brew Bar’.
