The biggest event on the coffee calendar in Asia is the annual SCAJ. This year marked it’s 11th year – with over 100 companies exhibiting in 200 booths focusing on specialty coffee. It was held at Tokyo Big Site over 3 days, and a record 25,000 visitors got the chance to join in various seminars and cupping events which served as a great chance for everyone to learn the latest trends in the specialty coffee industry. There was a lot of learning and a lot of coffee tasting! The goodcoffee.me team attended over the 3 days and posted live updates of the main event – the Japan Barista Championship – on our instagram account (@goodcoffeeme). On the third day, our in-house photographer Nik van der Giesen went around and captured the atmosphere of the event; the booths and the people involved. Enjoy the photos and keep an eye out on our “snap” page for more shots of some of the people we met!
