The African Fine Coffees Conference and Exhibition was held in Kigali, Rwanda in March 2019. The Conference and Exhibition was organized by the African Fine Coffees Association, under theme, ‘Specialty Coffees at the Heat of Africa”. At the global level, IWCA was represented by the IWCA Chapter Manager, Ms. Blanca Maria Castro, and the IWCA Uganda Chapter delegation, represented members of the Board and Secretariat.
The key activities included a Breakfast Meeting that facilitated the sharing of stories of women in coffee. IWCA Chapter Manager, Ms. Blanca Maria Castro addressed women in coffee, with a focus on Licensing and Facilitation of Effective Communication. “The future of specialty coffee must be diverse and inclusive. We must not only create a space for everyone but create a space that allows everyone to contribute and thrive. Our greatest opportunity to build a more equitable supply chain rests in diversity, bringing new ideas and more people to the table,” said Phyllis Johnson, BD Imports.
