The State and Future of the Business of Coffee, Part 2 | Re:co Symposium 2018

This is the third and final episode of “The State and Future of the Business of Coffee,” a session recorded at Re:co Symposium this past April. This session gathered business leaders in Specialty Coffee to discuss the ways that the specialty coffee trade has changed in the past decade, the challenges businesses face today, and how we might prepare for the future. If you haven’t watched the preceding videos in this series, we strongly recommend going back to watch before you continue with this episode.

In the final panel of 2018 Re:co Symposium in April, Nick Cho asks the question: how do we respond to the challenges that were identified during Re:co this year? To find some possible answers, he leads a discussion between three founders of solutions-oriented businesses as they explore the approaches they’re using to push specialty coffee forward: Isabella Raposeiras, Roaster, Founder, and Owner of Coffee Lab; Ian Williams, Owner of Deadstock Coffee; and Pamela Chng, Founder of Bettr Barista.
