Veneziano Coffee Roasters will be back at MICE2018! We sat down with the team to discuss sustainability, coffee influencers and sharing the coffee love.
MICE: What do you think the biggest coffee trend of 2018 will be?
Veneziano: Sustainibility – both in recyclable takeaway cups and coffee wastage. With the massive focus on the War on Waste this year we believe cafes and roasteries are becoming more sustainably conscious and there is a higher demand for new developments in takeaway cup material and waste solutions, reusable cups and the repurposing of coffee materials such as ground coffee. There is no doubt that the demand for recyclable takeaway cups will be trending in the next year as well as reusable cups. We have recently partnered with Reground which is a brilliant initiative that works to divert all ground coffee waste from landfill, educate the community on waste resources and help the coffee industry help the environment.
MICE: Who do you view as one of the biggest coffee influencers, and why?
Veneziano: We believe that international coffee farmers are the most important people when it comes to making coffee better. These farmers have really started to embrace modern technology, data and the improvements that can be made in processing methods. They have done their experimenting over the last few years and are now starting to refine their findings and implement them into growing and making more interesting and delicious coffees.
MICE: Which five words best describe Veneziano Coffee Roasters?
Veneziano: Dedicated to sharing beautiful coffee.
