PRF BRAZIL 2017

The 2017 Producer & Roaster Forum was held in Brazil, the world’s largest producer of coffee. Why Brazil? Not only does this country have a huge impact on the global coffee industry, it’s also creating innovative solutions for issues including traceability, sustainability, and more. Many of these get overlooked because it’s Brazil – but we believe it’s time to change that dialogue.
