The Business of Coffee

As one of the world’s favorite beverages and most consumed drink in the United States, many of us consider coffee a daily necessity. It’s estimated that more than 2 billion cups of coffee are drunk every day. With such a high demand, the coffee industry has become a multi-billion dollar industry that continues to significantly grow.

Is such a rapidly growing industry sustainable? What current issues are coffee shop owners/importers facing? How has the pandemic effected your business? How do you get started in the coffee industry?

Join us for an exciting and interactive event  featuring local coffee shops selling and showcasing products followed by a panel discussion with four industry experts! Each from different backgrounds, our panelist will share their stories, answer questions and offer advice on how to get involved in the coffee industry.
