Digital Coffee Future has returned with three sessions on developing and using digital tools at origin. Photo taken as a screenshot.

Earlier this year, Digital Coffee Future kicked off a series of webinars to address the growing presence of technology in coffee, with the value chain particularly in mind. As COVID-19 restrictions have further shifted our industry onto digital platforms, it was more important than ever to answer how to do this efficiently. After a strong four-part series, Digital Coffee Future is back to continue the conversation.

For this rendition of Digital Coffee Future, three sessions will focus on developing and using digital tools at origin, with the intention that this webinar be a two-way conversation. There will be more of a Q&A type format this time around, and key members of the Latin American coffee community will be able to share their own discoveries so far on the digitalization of their activities. “This event is an opportunity for Digital Coffee Future to create not only an international community around coffee digitalization, but also a local community, where professionals with similar needs and challenges can see themselves represented and part of an active conversation,” explains event organizer Elisa Criscione.

While there are many players in the coffee value chain, it was important to Digital Coffee Future to focus on producers in Latin America this time. For this reason, the entire event will be held in Spanish. “The Latin American coffee community is a fundamental backbone for the coffee sector,” says Elisa. “These conversations where cooperatives and local experts can share their voices and exchange perspectives on the broader level are not very common. This is an attempt for me to make these discussions possible. Hopefully, later on, Digital Coffee Future will be able to focus also on other areas of the world.”

In hosting this event, Elisa hopes that producers and cooperatives will feel empowered by the exchange of information. She also hopes that more members of the coffee community will look to those at origin for guidance and insight on how to carry forward in a Digital Coffee Future. “Most of the time, we hear about producers and co-ops from other actors higher in the chain and it’s time to start changing this,” Elisa affirms. “Especially now that we are able to organize virtual events quite easily and people can join almost from everywhere in the world (when accessing a decent internet connection).”
