Event description
Learn from Hanna Neuschwander about World Coffee Research and their work supporting sustainable, productive coffee farms around the world.

About this Event

Join us for an evening of networking with food industry professionals, and enjoy tacos and locally brewed beer and cider. Our guest speaker, Hanna Neuschwander of World Coffee Research, will discuss how new and interesting data driven approaches in coffee farming across the globe can help drive profitability and lift millions out of poverty.

Surprisingly, evidence-based, data driven approaches to profitable coffee farming in most coffee growing origins do not exist. The genetic improvement of coffee varieties through natural breeding techniques is far behind other perennial crops. These conditions mean that the capacity building impact of World Coffee Research’s work is as urgently needed as it will be transformational. Hanna will provide an overview of the coffee’s industry plan to address these needs, and will discuss some of the latest breakthroughs, like the discovery of genetic markers for high quality coffee.

Hanna is the communications director for World Coffee Research, a research nonprofit that works to secure the future of coffee. She writes and speaks globally about coffee science and agriculture. Her writing and commentary has appeared in the Art of Eating, Time Magazine, CNN, BCC, Portland Monthly, and many others. She is the author of Left Coast Roast, a guidebook to coffee roasters on the west coast.

*OSIFT scholarship award announcements will be made at our November meeting.
