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

This is the opening panel of the “The State and Future of the Business of Coffee”, a session at Re:co Symposium this year. 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.

To open this session, we were pleased to welcome our panel of guests: Nicholas Cho, Co-Founder and Head Barista of Wrecking Ball Coffee Roasters; Tracy Ging, Chief Commercial Officer and SVP at S&D Coffee and Tea; Josh Owen, President of Revelator Coffee Company; Teresa von Fuchs, Head of Sales at Bellwether Coffee; and Dan McCloskey, Founder and Chief Creative officer at Premium Quality Consulting.

Led by Nicholas Cho, the panel took the stage at Re:co Symposium to debate and discuss an important question: are we in a specialty coffee roaster bubble?
