Nothing beats the wonderful aroma of brewed coffee. Everyone has their own favorite way to enjoy coffee and anyone who loves coffee can tell you a story about a bad coffee experience they’ve had that has resulted in them not going back to a particular coffee shop, café or restaurant.

And when your favourite barista is sick and someone else has to take over who hasn’t had training, coffee aficionados can usually always tell.

Fiji Hotel and Tourism Association’s chief executive officer Fantasha Lockington confirmed that coffee suppliers Fiji Coffee have come on board as partners at this year’s HOTEC 2017. They will provide good coffee with lots of free training sessions for anyone who’s interested in learning to become a barista or has needed to take over the coffee machine at their work place with little or no confidence.

There will be programmed sessions for latte art, getting the perfect grind, machine maintenance and its importance and the opportunity to learn all about the various coffee types.

We would like everyone who attends HOTEC 2017 to get a taste of Fiji Coffee and to do so coffee drinkers will be asked to toss some gold coins into FHTA’s Gold Charity Box to get a cup of their favourite brew.

“FHTA was not able to hold their Charity Golf Day this year due to clashes with other events but we are intending to do so early next year,” she said.

“This small contribution will kick start our charity programme WATER FOR SCHOOLS where our fund raising efforts target several rural community schools who have indicated their need for water tanks.

“Many industry members give back to the communities they are located in by assisting with schools, villages, rugby teams, health centres and hospitals and farm projects. FHTA targets areas not normally associated with tourism.

“We don’t mind if you toss in some notes instead of gold coins” she said, “just don’t expect any change because it is going for a good cause.”

HOTEC 2017 is on the 16th and 17th November and will be opened by the Minister for Industry, Trade, Tourism, Lands & Mineral Resources, Faiyaz Koya.
