Coffee is one of the major export products for developing countries. More than 15 Millions people are involved in the in the coffee sector agronomy, trading and manufacturing. Furthermore, coffee is widely consumed and a very “visible” product.
The European companies (roasters and traders) represent a total import volume of about 50 million bags, or approximately 50% of the world trade volume.
There is strong demand from the European coffee industry for high-level managers able to adapt to the evolution of the sector and markets of the global coffee sector.
Coffee is considered a cash cropand though it is important for generating revenues for smallholder farmers in various regions, it is often not part of national food security strategy.
We propose a workshop to study the conditions of the emergence of The "International Master on Coffee and Coffee beverages Sciences".
We think that this Master should have for objectives:
a) implement Coffee culture and ’caféologie’ techniques in production contexts,
b) define production strategies and technical itineraries, in relation with marketing,
c) conduct experimentation and research projects in the relevant fields.
The contributions of the partners are as follows:
SupAgro: experience of teaching specialties (wines and vines)
Zhaw: experience of teaching and learning about roasted coffee and pckaging
UMRs CIRAD and IRD: agronomies, research questions and training grounds
Industries: internships and professional experiences
