CoLab: Antwerp - Discussion Vol. 1

September 12, 2016

This week, we’re stepping back a bit and revisiting the morning speakers that joined us at Barista Guild of Europe’s CoLab: Antwerp this past April, when Charlotte Malaval, Rob Berghmans, and Talor Browne took to the stage to answer questions from the audience. The questions—and resulting discussions—focused on management (both self-management as well as employee management), expectations, and the lack of a one-size-fits-all solution for looking after both your people and yourself when it comes to the coffee industry. There are many ways in which we need to grow to become a “sustainable” industry, but it’s encouraging and inspiring to see that this discussion has continued beyond CoLab: Antwerp with an increased focus on asking ourselves searching questions not only on how we can improve coffee or coffee quality, but also ourselves in the process.
