2019 Festival Programme

23-24 March 2019

Not content with just serving up good coffee, Cherry Coffee Festival sets out to introduce local consumers to more diverse and under-discussed topics in the Chinese specialty coffee market.

We were honoured to host a panel of some of the most influential specialty coffee professionals in the world, including two World Champions in coffee — Emi Fukahori and Irvine Quek; two of the most forward-thinking names in the global industry — Intelligentsia Coffee and Stumptown Coffee; and Third Wave Water, who’s pushing the boundaries of science and technology in the quest for tastier coffee.
