The Evolution of Innovation: How New Ideas Will Shape Specialty Coffee’s Future | Re:co 2018

This is the first episode from “The Evolution of Innovation: How New Ideas will Shape Specialty Coffee’s Future”, a session at Re:co Symposium this year. This session offered a glimpse of new ideas in coffee from some leading thinkers in specialty coffee and a discussion of how they are likely to shape the future of our industry.

This episode features a discussion with Ever Meister, Managing Editor at Cafe Imports; Arno Holschuh, Chief Operating Officer of Bellwether Coffee Company; Umeko Motoyoshi, VP of Product at Sudden Coffee; and Jay Ruskey, Co-Founder and CEO of Frinj Coffee.

Led by Ever Meister, the panel took the stage at Re:co this past April to explore the relationship between specialty coffee’s drive for constant innovation and its apparent reverence for tradition. What could innovation and irreverence do for specialty?
