April 19, 2018 - April 22, 2018- Seattle, WA
The TPSA project supported 5 Indonesian coffee producers to show their products at the Global Specialty Coffee Expo in Seattle on April 19–22, 2017. The five producers are: Arinagata Cooperative, Koperasi Kopi Wanita Gayo/Kokowagayo (women owned and managed cooperative), Redelong Organic Cooperative, Meukat Komuditi Gayo, and Orangutan Lestari Coffee.
During the trade fair, the coffee producers had the opportunity to promote their coffee at cupping sessions and one-on-one tastings with potential buyers, as well as using promotional materials such as coffee fact sheets, videos, and banners. TPSA coffee producers secured orders from Canadian and US-based buyers.
Before attending the trade show, the 5 producers received training from Trade Facilitation Office (TFO) Canada on how best to attend and make sales at trade shows in North America, and how to sell in Canada.
