World of Coffee 2019
This year's impressions of Europeans biggest coffee exhibition and a few snaps from the after Event at 19 Grams at Alexanderplatz, Berlin.
If Coffeeshop owner, Caffeine Junky or Technic Nerd at this year's world of coffee from the SCA - Specialty coffee Association, everyone got a little something extra.
Alongside 4 coffee championships and all different kinds of events and lectures, this year there was even more to discover - Design Lab, interactive Exhibit and even new completely self brewing coffee machines.
I talked to consumers and brands about Sustainability and the future what we can do to avoid plastic pollution (you'll read more on the plastaway page soon)
