New year = New venue and much more space to get CREATIVE

What can you expect this year?

New Venue. New format. Even more learning and fun.

With the help of our Partners, we are moving to a new venue to maximise hands on experiences and fun! The Station is an amazing event venue that will play host to so many more coffee professionals this year!

We've got an incredible line up of speakers and sponsors coming your way at the end of July in Durban.

We will be focusing on innovation from South Africa, improving our sensory skills, learning more about the science of coffee, hardworking ways to make your coffee business better and expanding our idea of coffee culture.

The Winner of A Shot in the Dark 2023 presented by Genio Coffee Roasters will also be announced and we have so many other fun and exclusive activities lined up!
