The Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) and Coffee Technicians Guild has opened registration for the 2022 Coffee Technicians Guild Summit at Accademia del Caffè Espresso in Florence, Italy from 29 to 30 November 2022.
This year’s event will be the first of its kind since 2019 and will see coffee technicians, machinists, and specialists from across the globe come together for two days of hands-on workshops and educational sessions with industry experts.
This year’s sessions will include hands-on workshops with automatic and super-automatic coffee machines, scale accuracy and calibration, sustainability best-in-practice, and more.
Coffee Technicians Guild Summit 2022 will be held at Accademia del Caffé Espresso in Northern Italy. Described as a cultural hub focused on espresso, Accademia del Caffé Espresso is a modern facility located in the hills of Tuscany just outside the city of Florence.
The SCA says this facility was created to inspire, educate, and promote the art of espresso and the craftsmanship behind the La Marzocco brand and continued legacy, a perfect place for an event of this kind.
“We are honoured to host the Coffee Technicians Guild Summit. Accademia was founded by La Marzocco to promote and enhance the culture around espresso coffee, and being an espresso machine manufacturer, we know how important skilled technicians are in maintaining equipment and supporting local businesses. We are proud to partner with SCA as they bring this valuable event to Accademia, contributing to the continuing education of coffee technicians,” says La Marzocco and Accademia del Caffé Espresso Coffee Education Leader Nora Smahelova.
Attendees that book before 17 October will enjoy Early Bird pricing. After this date ticket prices rise by at least US$74 for both SCA Members and Non-Members.
While accommodation and non-scheduled meals are not included in registration pricing, a list of hotels for all price-points and all budgets can be found on the SCA website.
