Inspired at NZ Specialty Coffee Symposium 2012

RSS By Anna McGregor | Nov. 20, 2012

This years annual symposium was held in Wellington and we had the pleasure of attending and being inspired by the great speakers and the fine company of the New Zealand Coffee community.

Stephen Leighton from Has Bean Coffee in the UK brought a hilarious but relevant presentation about the importance of quality and integrity and selling a product that reaches out to not only the Coffee Geeks but also our Mum's and everybody who drinks coffee. Check out this small video clip.

Doug Zell from Intelligentsia encouraged us all to be the best "me" we can be and believe in what we do and sell a product that is a quality item. At Intelligentsia they encourage healthy competition between their roasters in Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco and also use science and data to continue to improve roasting quality. In essense our local coffee industry is fashioned by roasters, customers and the environment. Doug's video clip.
