12.30 p.m. – 1.00 p.m., stage 3 Coffee is the new wine – appreciation for coffee. Those who do not honor the coffee are not worth the sales. “Not everything that is warm and brown is coffee!”. Corona enabled consumers to sharpen their senses and taste buds, try them out, compare them and think about it. This will now break in on the catering industry, which can no longer justify and achieve the high prices for coffee beverages without a comprehensibly justified taste experience in the cup. Coffee needs appreciation and staging – coffee is becoming the new wine. Dr. Steffen Schwarz, Coffee Consulate, Germany
