Read on to learn more about why you should join us and attend PRF El Salvador in March 2023.
Learn from some of the world’s foremost coffee experts
One of PRF’s key aims for this event is to champion El Salvador as a knowledge center for specialty coffee in Central America.
To do this, we’re putting together a lineup of industry-leading speakers from across the supply chain. This will include a full roster of Spanish speakers, many of whom have extensive experience in coffee production.
Past speeches have focused on topics like emerging markets, coffee consumption trends, sustainability, and gender equity.
By bringing these experts to El Salvador, we’re making it clear that coffee producers should have an active and leading role in discussions that could shape the future of our industry.
Alongside these lectures, PRF El Salvador will also host panel discussions, hands-on workshops, and cupping experiences, all aimed at informing and engaging attendees.
Network & build relationships
Part of PRF’s mission is to drive green coffee sales in a producing country, and we do this by creating opportunities for attendees to network. The idea is that the relationships which begin at PRF can form the basis of long-term mutually beneficial business partnerships which last for years.
As well as hosting thousands of local attendees, PRF will also welcome roasters, green coffee buyers, traders, coffee shop owners, and champion baristas. This makes it an excellent platform for professionals from all over the world to meet, share their experiences, and discuss potential partnerships.
Through cupping sessions, roundtable discussions, and the separate Sourcing Trip Experience, PRF generates meaningful interactions that drive the coffee sector forward.
Furthermore, our Exhibition Arena is set to feature booths from businesses from all across the coffee supply chain, including packaging suppliers, equipment manufacturers, and logistics companies.
Drink great coffee & participate in competitions
As well as watching the speeches and panel discussions, attendees will also be able to visit the Brew Bar and Espresso Bar to drink coffees from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras.
We’ll be featuring local roasters, as well as other roasters from Central America and coffees from exporters in the region.
Alongside this, we’ll also be hosting a number of competitions across the two-day forum, including the Campeonato de Barismo and a Cold Brew Championship.
