Sustainable Harvest’s Let’s Talk Coffee will return on 20 February 2023 for a five-day conference tackling the industry’s key challenges and opportunities. For the first time, the gathering will be in Copan Ruinas, Honduras.
“Honduras is a hidden gem in the specialty coffee industry,” says Sustainable Harvest founder and CEO David Griswold. “Over the past 10 years, it has grown to be one of the most important coffee origins not only in volume but for its untapped potential.”
Those invited to attend will have the opportunity to intimately familiarise themselves with the region and its high-quality coffee, as they build transparent and trustworthy relationships with thought leaders from all parts of the coffee world, including roasters, producers and baristas, as well as financiers and NGOs.
The initial speaker line-up includes Andrea and Jon Allen from Onyx Coffee Lab, Elizabeth Whitlow, Executive Director from the Regenerative Organic Alliance, Rachel Peterson from Panama’s Hacienda La Esmeralda, Aida Batlle from El Salvador, and Cosimo Librado from Barista Attitude, with more speakers to be announced in November.
“At Let’s Talk Coffee, you’re going to find out what’s trending, you’re going to find out who are these major players in global economic development and what are they focused on, and how to find synergy in a way that’s going to benefit us all,” says Phil Beattie, Director of Coffee for Dillanos Coffee Roasters.
For Let’s Talk Coffee 2023, Sustainable Harvest is partnering with Cafe de Honduras and the Honduras Tourism Institute, both of which will be supporting the event as sponsors.
According to Sustainable Harvest, Let’s Talk Coffee is widely recognised for its emphasis on transparency and honest conversation, with no topic off the table and no sectors left out.
Built around producers’ experiences and with the goal to level the playing field, Let’s Talk Coffee builds space for open dialogues between all the stakeholders in the value chain, and, most significantly, between roasters and producers.
