Do you want to discuss the latest trends in coffee with industry leaders – while at origin?

The Perfect Daily Grind Micro Coffee Festival is returning this September! This time, we’ll be going to Brazil, the world’s largest producer of coffee.

Spread over 2 days, you’ll stay on a coffee farm*, hear international speakers present, cup coffees from around the globe, and international guests will even have the opportunity to travel to coffee farms around Brazil.

*International guests only

Why Brazil? Not only does this country have a huge impact on the global coffee industry, but it’s creating innovative answers to issues around traceability, sustainability, and more. Many of these get overlooked because it’s Brazil – but we believe it’s time to question that dialogue. Moreover, in comparison to Latin America, young professionals in Brazil are starting to work in coffee, since they can have higher incomes and pay workers higher wages which can incentivise younger generations of coffee professionals.

Last year’s event in El Salvador generated significant coffee sales and led to thought-provoking discussions on topics from how specialty buyers can improve their relationship with producers to hiring the right coffee employees and what specialty coffee can learn from the rum industry. Attendees came from Asia, Africa, the Middle East, Europe, and North/South America. Check out the recap video here.

Here’s what people thought of last year…

Benji Salim, The Q Coffee Trading - “In this event you are more united as a community, it is a community of specialty which I think it is a very successful event”

Michelle M de Matheu, Mandala Coffee - “ So many cultures, so many different ways of working. There is no right or wrong. It is all about the learning process”

Jesus Salazar Velasco, Cafeologo - “If what interests us is the distinctiveness of a specialty coffee and its origin, then we should be more attentive in listening to what that origin has to say, and not only the coffee bean but also the farm and what the producer has to say”.
