During the STE, visiting roasters and buyers will be able to experience Colombian coffee production first hand, staying with local hosts on coffee farms across Colombia in groups of up to 15. Visitors will visit farms and farmers, participate in cupping sessions, travel to various mills, observe harvesting and processing, and join roundtable discussions with producers.
