Historic meeting of women in coffee

Oct 22, 2008

An update from Sherri Johns

Eight women from small independent roasters, marketing managers and presidents of major companies attended the first-ever meeting of Japanese women in coffee at the Specialty Coffee Association of Japan Coffee Conference and Exhibition October 15 -17 in Tokyo .

This just shows how diverse we are, no matter where we are. I attended on behalf of International Women's Coffee Alliance and congratulated the group on their gathering. I also shared some insight as a board member of IWCA and distributed the Japanese membership forms (thank you Margaret) and small cards with our website and vision statement. They were enthusiastic and ready to begin an initiative to create a local chapter.
With this small and mighty group I believe Japan has an incredible opportunity to make a large impact for all women in coffee in Japan and reach other "coffee sisters" throughout the world.
