World of Coffee 2018 Amsterdam: Schedule

Hits: 10

World of Coffee 2018 is being held in Amsterdam, The Netherlands this year. Starting on Wednesday the 20th of June and ending on the 23rd of June, this event will bring together exhibitioners, the worlds best barista’s and fans from all over the world. There is so much to do during these four days that a schedule might come in handy, right?

World of Coffee 2018 starts on the 20th of June and it is an event that I have been looking forward to for a long time already. The RAI conference centre will play host to the biggest coffee event in the world and a time table is something you will definitely want to have with you. Do you want to go to the Coffee roasters Guild Mixer? you’ll have to be in the Guilds Lounge in Hall 8 on Friday, the WOC cupping rooms? In the meeting rooms on the first floor on Thursday or do you want to watch the World Barista Championship? Also in Hall 8! You see; there is a lot to do and so many places to be at.

    I read a couple of articles. I’m not pretty much coffee fan, but I’m interested in it. I think I can learn something from your blogs, and I’ll update it frequently. Hope to see more.

    What a pity I couldn’t join the coffee conference last year in June . It looks amazing. Maybe I’m not pretty much coffee fan, but I’m interested in it. I think I can learn something from your blogs, and I’ll update it frequently. Hope to see more.
