The No Filter panel series will take place for the first time on the second day of PRF Colombia (15 September 2023).
The aim of this panel series is to discuss some of the most pressing yet often overlooked issues in the coffee industry. We want to welcome strong and potentially divisive opinions from across the industry. As such, we are inviting panel participants to express (and defend) their thoughts on the following three topics:
- Is the coffee industry moving forwards or backwards with exporters buying cherry rather than parchment?
- What’s more important: Price per lb or cost of production?
- Specialty vs commercial: Which makes more of an impact on producers’ livelihoods?
