SCA Executive Director Ric Rhinehart at Re:co Seattle in April 2018.
We have a little tradition at Re:co, when Ric gives an annual talk on the State of Specialty Coffee. We’ve given that talk a number of names over the years, like ‘Ric’s Fireside Chat’ and ‘Ric’s Doom And Gloom Warning’, but it’s become one of the most anticipated and valuable parts of our conference.
Ric always brings together a variety of indicators— economic data, industry insights, and years worth of experience and firsthand knowledge– and weaves it together in a powerful narrative on the risks threatening our industry and possible solutions to them. This year is no different. Ric’s talk is an amazing economics lesson and call to action for our industry.
