Coffee News: from Seed to Cup

WOC 2018, Amsterdam: The Cupping Schedule

,

We’re just days away from one of the biggest coffee events of the year: World of Coffee, Amsterdam. Set in one of Europe’s trendiest cities, the three-day-long exhibition boasts a huge range of features. In addition to hundreds of exhibitors, attendees will get to experience the World Barista Championship, the Sustainability Forum, lectures, Best New Product Awards, the Roaster’s Village… and, of course, coffee cuppings.

These cuppings are an invaluable opportunity for roasters and coffee buyers to discover new coffees, sample a wide range of origins, and understand the market trends.

So check out the cupping schedule below and make sure you don’t miss out:
