Our last video from CoLab: Paris is the afternoon panel discussion, featuring Katie Carguilo, Morten Munchow, and Klaus Thomsen. Kicking off with a heavily philosophical question—what drives you to keep going, within specialty coffee, when the goal-posts keep moving?—this panel discussion is home to some incredible gems from those on stage about the ethics of direct trade, fair trade, and post-colonial trading structures, as well as innovation, genetic modification of Arabica, and other research initiatives.

We had an absolutely great time at CoLab: Paris—thanks again to all of our speakers and our host partners, Barista Guild of Europe and Frog Fight!
