Here is an overview of the people that Participated at ‘Let’s talk Coffee 2012’

Café Mystique Coffee participated at the 10th annual Let’s Talk Coffee which was held in the state of Antioquia, Colombia, just outside of the vibrant city of Medellin. With more than 460 participants from 28 countries, this year’s event was the biggest and most ambitious event yet. Having participated on the event was crucial, as we work together to shape the next generation of relationship coffee.

Over the course of four days, participants attended discussions, workshops, and field trips. They discussed certifications, sustainability, and metrics, cupped both arabicas and robustas, attended a training inside a real shipping container, and visited model farms in the mountains of Colombia.

Sevan Istaboulian from Mystique Coffee traveled to Colombia to build stronger relationships and to share ideas at Let’s Talk Coffee. It was great to spend time with all our coffee peers in Colombia!
