Borneo Coffee Symposium

April 6, 2019 @ 8:00 am – April 7, 2019 @ 5:00 pm

The first Coffee Symposium in Borneo will take place from 6 to 7 April,, at the Old Court House in Kuching.

The symposium is organised by Earthlings Coffee Workshop and will bring together a line-up of coffee experts from around the world, from coffee scientists to farmers and estate owners in the industry.

Among the speakers and presenters are Dr. Steffen Schwarz, a veteran of the European Coffee industry, Jacob Mammen who is a 3rd generation planter of the Estates owned by the Mammen family as well as Andres Quantanilla who is a fourth-generation coffee farmer from El Salvador, and many more.

Borneo is in the centre region of the coffee belt where temperatures are best suited for coffee cultivation, and the island has some of the most exotic coffees, including a rare species of Liberica which has a very fruity flavour.

The event organisers are hosting this symposium as part of a movement to push for awareness on Sarawak and Borneo’s potential in the coffee industry, while providing a platform for coffee professionals to exchange information, experiences and ideas, helping local industry players find their place in the bigger picture of coffee.
