Last Year (Rwanda Conference)

AFCA once again merged the Taste of Harvest Pavilion and B2B Meeting Space. Area was predominately filled with US, European and Asian Buyers. The following stayed through most of the cuppings from start to finish.

  • ORIMI LLC
  • Coffee Manufactory
  • BD Imports
  • Intelligentsia Coffee
  • Eastern Roastery UAE
  • Artisan Coffee Imports
  • Coffee By Design

These international buyers cupped several member’s coffees (6 – 12 samples each).

AFCA also held private cuppings for several Fairtrade, IWCA & CEPAR coffees.
