The highlight of the weekend, as expressed by many attendees, was the Roundtable Discussion on Saturday. Participants discussed controversial topics such as Fair Trade, relationship coffee/direct trade, the Q Coffee System, and the supply of specialty coffee. Although there were many different viewpoints and opinions on these topics, attendees expressed that it was very valuable to get so many roasters and coffee professionals together in one place to discuss these important topics. The goal was not to come away from these discussions with a general consensus, but rather to open the dialogue for continued discussion outside the walls of this classroom. And continue it did! In the halls, at dinner, over the camp fire…folks were engaged in these conversations long after the session ended.
