We invite you to listen to our conversations with several female leaders in the coffee industry. In this series, we identified 12 inspiring women from across the globe who are challenging the status quo to make coffee better, specifically focusing on highlighting incredible women and their endless passion for coffee. As we searched for women leaders to participate in this project, we realized that the industry is extremely fortunate to have so many female figures doing so much for coffee, its future, the people and its sustainability. We wish we had infinite time and space to have a conversation with all of them, but since that is not possible, we have selected 12 interviews that will be released as podcasts and videos every week, starting on Wednesday, September 29th. The women listed below are experts in different areas who bring inspiration by doing so much good for the industry. Listening to them share their “aha” moments and lessons inspired us so much to continue making coffee better, together! Because as Beyonce says: “who run the world? Girls!”

There are many microbes responsible for this and the types of naturally occurring yeasts and bacteria will have a huge impact on the taste of the coffee.
