Considered the most important event of specialty coffee in the world, the SCAA Annual Show in 2009 had the participation of Coocafé. This year the event was held between 16 and 19 April in Atlanta, Georgia, USA. The director of the Cooperative president, Fernando de Cerqueira Romeiro, was present at the fair, with the Brazilian delegation, composed of farmers and directors of cooperatives, and consultants of SEBRAE – institution that organized and funded the trip. This is the XXI edition of this event, in which companies expose the main news related to coffee. For the president of Coocafé, Brazil's participation in exhibitions, it is extremely important because the country is very focused on producing quality coffee. “You could say that today, Brazil is a leading producer of quality coffee in the world.
A few years ago the situation was different. In the region that Coocafé attends, before the start of the activities of the cooperative (in 2009 the Cooperative completes 30 years), it did not know what was coffee quality. Through the hard work of technicians Coocafé and commitment of our producers, we reversed this picture, and we made reference specialty coffee in question, as we show in SCAA Annual Show 2009 “, assessed the president.
