Fifth Annual Ramacafé International Coffee Conference
This past September 5th, 6th and 7th, 2005, Sogimex was pleased to attend the 5th Annual Ramacafé International Coffee Conference, held at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Convention Center in the city of Managua, Nicaragua.
The Conference offered its participants the latest information from the coffee world in presentations imparted by renowned national and international speakers. Responding to the demands of the global coffee situation, topics covered in the four previous conferences grew in scope to include integral farm and market management and the assurance of sustainability, emphasizing all aspects that integrate quality and efficiency in production.
As an added bonus, once the Conference was finished, a few special guests got to spend a whole day at Ramacafé's own 'La Virgen Estates' in Matagalpa. The list included personalities from the modern coffee world such as Grace Mena (Sintercafe / CR), Christian Wolthers (Utz Kapeh), Rogerio Alba (Caribbean Coffees / Dom. Rep.), Carlos V. Urmeneta Jr. (Sogimex/ Honduras), Paul O'Toole (Bewley's / Ireland) and Soren Knudsen (Sustainable Solutions / Brazil).
Special thanks to our brothers from Exportadora Atlantic for their kind hospitality during our stay in Nicaragua.
