Sustainability Drinks #14 – Fair Chocolate & Coffee: Good for your soul and the world

September 24, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 11:00 pm

WE ARE BACK! After the summer break we welcome you back with two of the most important things in your life – chocolate & coffee!

This event will deal with the challenges and opportunities related to production, sourcing and processing of these precious goods. Find out about farmers fates and initiatives for improvement across the value chain.

With presentations from
*Sascha Spittel, Co-founder of Tres Cabezas on “Coffee – matching quality and equality”
*Alyssa Jade McDonald-Bärtl, Founder of BLYSS on “Chocolate – social entrepreneurship beyond the obvious”.

Indulge in sweet chocolate and strong coffee tastings! By:
*Eduadorian cacao producers’ cooperative KALLARI
*Also-Ecuadorian-and-just-as-great PACARI chocolate
*artisan chocolate manufacturer BELYZIUM
*the creator of vitalizing chocolate drinks KOAWACH
*Alyssa Jade McDonald’s own BLYSS chocolate company.

Did you think that fair trade = fair trade? These producers will tell you a different story: each one of them has their own unique approach to creating chocolate that’s good for you AND the people who work in the cacao value chain.

We will also have 1-minute quickpitches again, so be ready if you got something to say and sign up here: http://sustainabilitydrinks.de/quickpitches.html!
