Additionally, We are excited to share that we have partnered with Project Buna, to offer some very unique swag to all attendees. The mission behind Project Buna is to make great coffee more accessible to everyone. When they started their coffee journey, they couldn’t have imagined the variables that go into a good cup of coffee. Since then, the team at Project Buna has learned a lot over the last few years, and that journey of discovery is one of the things they want to share with the world. “Crowd-sourced” and “collaborative” are not common words in coffee roasting, but the team at PB developed a new concept unlike anything seen elsewhere.

Over the course of the leadup to Manufacturers Engage, attendees will have an opportunity to view at their own pace a 1-hour overview on all things Coffee; From there, we curated an experience for the Manufacturer’s Engage cohort members that includes behind-the-scenes content and actual decision-making (we will live vote during the ME event on things such as Country of Origin, Boldness, Flavoring, Roast and more that will shape this blend we have dubbed: Project: ME (Manufacturers Engage)
