Event report: Coffee Expo Korea 2017

The coffee industry under one roof

Coffee Expo is the biggest coffee exhibition in Korea, co-hosted by the Korea Coffee Association. This year a total of 219 stands were present!

The ‘coffee industry under one roof’, as it is sometimes called on social media, took place from April 6 until April 9, in Coex Halls A and B, in Seoul.

The Korea Barista Awards were held for the first time, followed up by an award ceremony.

We put up a large replica of our W6A Coffee Roaster inside our booth, which quickly drew a crowd around our stand. This way plenty of visitors were able to view our machines: the WPG1, the smallest one and the W60A (regular-sized), the largest one.

The main theme of the event was ‘tastes’. This meant that the main purpose of each exhibitor was to show the products and services that can be used to improve the client’s flavour experience. We displayed our WPG1 control panel, so Korean coffee enthusiasts could get a taste of our latest software developments.

Espresso is one of the most popular coffee varieties. It is a brewing style and actually not a roasting style although there are certain useful tips to consider. Espresso means that in a short period of time we try to extract as much flavour from the coffee as possible.
