Spencer Turer from Coffee Analysts attended Let’s Talk Coffee 2011 in Salinitas, El Salvador along with Jeff Alpert and Jenny Perez from Coffee Extracts & Ingredients. The conference is organized by Sustainable Harvest and attended by over 375 attendees from 24 different countries. The theme for this years conference was “Redesigning the Coffee Supply Chain.” Spencer participated in meetings with coffee producers and roasters regarding coffee quality and harvest expectations.
During the conference the region experienced torrential rains that caused extreme flooding and mudslides. However the poor weather did not dampen our spirit for building strong supply relationships and discussing coffee quality for calibrations amongst supply chain partners.
