Every year the international coffee community comes together at the Specialty Coffee Expo. This event brings together professionals from every step of the coffee supply chain to discuss, learn, and make new contacts.

2018 marks a significant milestone for IWCA as we celebrate the organization’s 15th anniversary. As a global network, IWCA connects chapters in 22 countries and supporters across the Americas, Europe, and Asia with a shared vision to connect, empower, and advance #WomenInCoffee. Royal Coffee, Inc. is a proud sponsor of the IWCA, and we hope you can join us in Seattle at one of the events outlined below to learn more about their partnerships, development programs, and research.

IWCA Breakfast

“We have refreshed the format of this annual event and you will not want to miss it! This year’s breakfast will feature four interactive presentations led by IWCA chapter members and partners. Discussions will cover a range of topics including market access to emerging markets. Attendees will have the option to choose which presentation they would like to participate in and there will still be plenty of time for networking and Q&A! We will be announcing presentation topics and speakers on social media so be sure to RSVP for this event on Facebook.”

IWCA Booth and Cuppings

You can find IWCA on the Expo floor at booth 2819, or attend two special cupping sessions being held at this year’s SCA Expo in Seattle, Washington. In addition to tasting more than 25 coffees, you will also have the opportunity to meet and network with some of the IWCA producers!

The April 19 cupping will be held in room 618, and the April 22 cupping will be held in room 615. You can see the full Cupping Exchange calendar here.

Please RSVP to this event on our Facebook page to help us ensure we can accommodate all attendees!
