When one thinks of coffee, the first region coming to mind is not Borneo. And yet, Borneo is in the centre region of the coffee belt where temperatures are best suited for coffee cultivation. Borneo has some of the most exotic coffees, including a rare species of Liberica which was tasted for the first time by European coffee experts at the Stuttgart Coffee Symposium this year. They were surprised by the fruitiness of the coffee exhibited.
Thanks to the response at the symposium in Stuttgart, Earthlings Coffee Workshop decided to hold a coffee symposium in Kuching; to show the world that Borneo has something to offer to the global coffee industry.
“We need a movement to push for awareness of what they are fighting for, and this symposium will be the platform just for that, you will be learning and connecting with these coffee professionals, and maybe find your place in the bigger picture of coffee.” – Earthlings Coffee Workshop
