The Re:co Symposium Fellowship program benefits those individuals who may be new to coffee or for a variety of reasons, including financial, have not had the opportunity to attend. We welcome all those who may be able to make a substantial contribution to the discourse at Re:co Symposium or who are recent members of the coffee community.

The ideal Re:co Fellow is a future or current leader in specialty coffee, driving the future of coffee. They might be a graduate student who is focusing on coffee research, a producer/co-op leader who has organized their community around coffee quality, a young entrepreneur who is building a company around a great idea, or a person working for an NGO who is making a special difference.

The Fellowship covers the registration fee for Re:co Symposium and includes complimentary access to  the Specialty Coffee Expo.

The application period for Re:co Symposium in the United States is open between December and January, with selections announced in February.  Please check back for specific dates as that time draws near.

You have so many bright minds in one concentrated room that you get to really have a dialogue, and everyone there is willing to connect. If you have something to say, this is the place to say it.
