Coffee is on the rise in the Asian market, with a projected value of US$47.2 billion by 2020. Against this growing backdrop, SpecialtyCoffee&Tea2018 will return to the Singapore Expo from April 14-17 2018. The event functions as a networking opportunity for exhibitors to connect with established and up-and-coming F&B and hospitality establishments looking to extend their tea and coffee range. Confirmed exhibitors so far include Dilmah, Boncafe, Coffex Coffee, Hälssen & Lyon and Schaerer.

“SpecialtyCoffee&Tea has been a very valuable opportunity to present our premium tea blends because the event attracts the ideal diversity of business sectors,” said Dietmar Scheffler, Managing Director of Hälssen & Lyon. “It covers a large geographical area, as representatives travel from far and wide to Singapore. We were content with the quality of the contacts because we met decision-makers who took a great interest in superior tea, fruit and herbal blends.”

The show will also feature a line-up of four competitions – the Barista Super Duo Challenge, the new Roast Master Challenge, the new Silver Spoon Challenge and Latte Art Showdown. These competitions will see Asia’s best baristas go head to head for the prestigious titles.
