Each year, the Specialty Coffee Association’s Best New Product Competition recognizes new products that represent quality and add value to the specialty coffee and tea industry. Eight different product categories are evaluated using the “Best I.D.E.A.S.” criteria set out by the SCA, with a winner declared in each category. Thez World of Coffee Berlin 2019 Best New Product Awards went to:
Design Lab is a platform for showcasing great design in specialty coffee, taking place at World of Coffee for the first the time in Berlin this June. Design Lab was established at our 2016 Expo in Atlanta, focusing initially on coffee packaging, but has grown to include new showcases and will now be present at two shows.
The SCA takes great pride in its history of investigating the scientific principles of coffee, from chemistry and physics to agronomy and sensory perception. This research helps to develop education, standards, and best practices which form the basis of the specialty coffee trade. We’re excited to present a small showcase of #SCAResearch lectures at this year’s World of Coffee!
