There's so much to look forward to at CCW 2022

We've got an incredible line up of speakers and sponsors coming your way at the end of July in Durban. The event will be livestreamed virtually again this year, but we are also doubling the space so we can welcome more people to be part of the action in person. We will be focusing on innovation from South Africa, improving our sensory skills, learning more about the science of processing, hardworking ways to make your coffee business better and expanding our idea of coffee culture.

The Top 10 of A Shot in the Dark presented by Genio Coffee Roasters will also be announced and we have so many other fun and exclusive activities lined up!
