USA/Brazil Roaster Exchange

Our first USA/Brazil Roaster Exchange was filled with new ideas and innovations that Brazilian roasters can bring to their coffee market. The team at George Howell Coffee talked with Danilo Lodi on the first day about educating customers while remaining innovative with the coffees being served. Day 2 had Ian Logan from Intelligentsia Coffee discussed with Hugo Rocco from Moka Club on how Brazilian coffee is a staple for Intelligentsia and how Intelligentsia uses Cropster to develop and improve their coffees. On Day 3, Dakota Graff from Onyx Coffee Lab gave a tour of Onyx's HQ and discussed implementing Cropster in roastery workflows with Boram Um from Um Coffee Co.
