The ASIC conference is the premier symposium on coffee science in the world. Participants include hundreds of researchers, members of industry, students, and academics, all focused on sharing the most cutting-edge information and advanced coffee science in the world. Hear from these professionals on eight cutting-edge topics exploring the full spectrum of coffee science.


Discussing the state-of-the art in genetic evaluation, novel breeding technologies and plant selection processes. 


Evaluating the impact of various drying, roasting, grinding and brewing techniques. 


Understanding the maturation process and biochemical transformations happening to a green coffee bean as it grows.

Evaluating an array of sustainability practices that touch every level of coffee production. 


Coffee’s overall effect on the human body, from both a production and consumption standpoint.


Understanding more about the pests and diseases that affect coffee and how to protect against them


Evaluating the science and chemistry of roasted coffee, and understanding how these are linked to the formation, composition and degradation of flavor from a chemical, physiological and sensory perspective.

The science behind the way people produce coffee, from farming and processing all the way to export. Looking at practical techniques that improve propagation, plantation, fertilization, ecology and post-harvest technologies.
