9 - 10 am / Caleb Nicholes / Power, Privilege and Responsibility: The Socioeconomic Landscape Between Coffee Buyers & Producers / Room 254 A
The C-Market is failing farmers and the disparities in power and economic position between coffee producers and buyers are more pronounced than ever. How can we level the playing field and create a truly fair and sustainable future for coffee? Join Kickapoo Coffee co-owner, Caleb Nicholes, for a panel discussion to explore the historical and contemporary impact of the C Market trading system, the socioeconomic inequities at play between coffee producers and coffee buyers today and the power and, more importantly, the responsibility that coffee buyers have in driving change.
