Sensory Summit

Tickets are now available for the United States edition of Sensory Summit, the only event in coffee dedicated to sensory science and research for sensory professionals.

After hosting Sensory Summit digitally, the Specialty Coffee Association (SCA) is bringing Sensory Summit back as an in-person event hosted at UC Davis, US, from 4 to 6 February 2022.

Sensory Summit has fast become one of the SCA’s most popular events, driven by the interest in academic sensory science research and professional sensory training.

Topics for this edition of Sensory Summit include the latest research on coffee acidity, cold brew vs hot brew, cutting-edge tools for the coffee taster, consumer research, chemicals that drive coffee’s mouthfeel, and how moisture affects coffee’s quality during shipment and storage.

Each lecture will include a customised sensory activity, allowing attendees to learn about the science through their senses of taste and smell and their intellect.

The event is a unique opportunity for the coffee professional to learn more about sensory science in an accessible, interactive way.

Tickets are priced at US$1025 for SCA members and US$1475 for non-SCA members.

The price includes all ten sensory talks and experiences, supplies for all experiences, dinner on Friday and Saturday, breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday, and a trip to Hops Farm.

Attendees can save US$100 by purchasing an early bird ticket before 14 January.

The SCA is a trade association with a purpose to foster global coffee communities to make coffee a more sustainable, equitable and thriving activity for the whole value chain.
