WHY

Barista Connect

Barista Connect is dedicated to improving equality by empowering and inspiring women in various roles within the international coffee community. We create an opportunity to do this through our events, where we bring together women from around the world together to exchange knowledge, experiences and build long lasting professional connections. Our events provide a unique environment to participate in guest lectures, sensory and hands on sessions, as well as open discussions. We keep relocating our events to reach members of different local coffee communities.

We are very proud to present our speaker lineup for Barista Connect Melbourne. An incredible group of passionate creatives, entrepreneurs and craftsmen all making an impact in our industry will join us to share their personal experiences and inspire us with their knowledge and perspectives.
