Fresh Cup’s Twenty-Fifth Anniversary

Fresh Cup's twenty-fifth anniversary

This week marks Fresh Cup Magazine’s twenty-fifth anniversary. For the last two-and-half decades, Fresh Cup has been a trusted resource, informing coffee and tea professionals updated on emerging trends, providing resources for running a successful business, and facilitating education from seed to cup.

This week, we’re bringing you anniversary content: a time line of coffee’s history, Ward Barbee’s first publisher’s letter, reflections from longtime industry professionals, and a dig through Fresh Cup‘s archives (we found some gems—it was a different time).

We’ll update the links below as stories go live throughout the week. If these stories inspire you to share reflections of your own, we welcome you to contact us at comments@freshcup.com.

Thanks to all who have been a part of making Fresh Cup a wonderful publication.

The editors of Fresh Cup Magazine.
