Future coffee: sustainability anche innovation – the title of the sixth edition of the Trieste Coffee Experts anticipates the topics that will be covered during the convention. Nowadays, everything revolves around the topic of “sustainability”, which inevitably represents the focus on which the development and research departments of those far-sighted companies who want to innovate are concentrating, certainly to obtain a competitive advantage in commercial terms but which at the same time at the same time they want to be able to generate well-being for the entire ecosystem within which they operate, thus guaranteeing the basis for looking to the future with confidence and serenity. The speeches, entrusted to executives of leading companies in the sector, will therefore allow us to look at the future of coffee – a future characterized both by digital habits and by attention to new or lost values.
