Green Bean Zone  / Golden Bean Awards Dinner

Green Bean Zone 9.00am – 11.00am
This initiative is designed to create a link between the green bean buyers and roasters. In many cases it is quite difficult to meet face to face due to the geographical challenges in Australia and roasters are only getting to choose from the coffees that are sent to them as samples.  It will also include a cupping session / buying show whereby roasters can cup a broad spectrum of origins and make purchasing decisions.

Speak Easy Awards Dinner 7.00pm – 11.00pm
Bus Transfer – Bus Pick up 6.30 Rydges, Port Macquarie
