Annual IWCA Breakfast at SCAA Seattle

The Annual IWCA Breakfast will take place April 26 at Specialty Coffee Association of America’s Expo, Seattle, WA. 

To purchase a ticket for the breakfast visit the SCAA Expo registration page. Select "IWCA Breakfast" under ticketed events section of the registration process. 

Guest Speaker - Chido Govera

Chido Govera grew up as an orphan in Zimbabwe. She will share the story of how she learned how to grow mushrooms, which enabled her to feed both her family and community. Chido eventually designed a new way to cultivate mushrooms from coffee waste, which provided a kind of self-sustaining answer to the problems wrought by poverty, gendered norms, economic immobility, and cultural barriers to self-actualization.
