This year at MICE discover three rising specialty coffee stars
Specialty coffee from Timor-Leste, Papua New Guinea and Sri Lanka will be on display at the Market Development Facility (MDF) stall in Origin Alley.
Unique flavours and origin stories await visitors.
The appeal of Papua New Guinea’s growing specialty scene
Papua New Guinea’s rich, fertile soil and highland altitudes make for textbook coffee growing conditions. BeanScene looks at why purchasing coffee from our island neighbour can also have a significant socio-economic impact.
Discover the charm of Timor-Leste coffee
The specialty coffee scene of Timor-Leste is fast-emerging as a connoisseur favourite – driven by a local passion for drinking, experimenting, and producing transformative flavours. BeanScene talks with MDF and the Asosiasaun Café Timor about why Australians should get a taste at MICE2022.
Sri Lanka: Cultivating a unique 21st century coffee story
For the past 150 years, Ceylon Tea has been Sri Lanka’s most famous export. Yet arabica coffee thrived in the rich highland soils before tea was introduced. With the right infrastructure and specialty coffee processes in place, experts believe the time is ripe for a second success story with Sri Lankan coffee.
