In this episode of Coffee Gals, we chatted with Sam Mazella, trader and licensed Arabica Q Grader at RGC Coffee, a third-generation green coffee importer based in Montreal, QC, and Founder and President of East Coast Coffee Madness, a coffee event in Montreal where industry professionals and coffee lovers ‘meet + learn + grow’ once a year.

We learn about how their coffee event came to life since it was first founded in 2015 with some key roasters and coffee enthusiasts in Montreal and how they’ve grown and adapted since then.
