Roasters are asked to send in a sample of their finest coffee marked for espresso, filter of both. A team of Certified Q Graders will be responsible for sipping the roasts from around the world, at the Specialty Coffee Association of America’s headquarters in Santa Ana, California. The top scoring coffees will keep TED2016 attendees alert while they ponder why dreams matter more than ever. TED2016’s fast-paced program will be presented over five days and will feature, among other things, TED’s renowned 18-minute talks, plus music, comedy, technology demonstrations.
