Morning coffee

August 10, 2008

Almost every day either an event organiser or delegate asks me why our building is called International Coffee Organization.

Well, I’m afraid there’s nothing mysterious behind that name, it’s actually a case of doing what it says on the can. Quite simply the building hosts the headquarters of an intergovernmental organisation that regulates coffee trade called -you’ve guessed it- International Coffee Organization (ICO).

As it happens, coffee is one of the most important traded commodities (if you ask me early in the morning, I would say it’s the most important…) so, even if not many people have heard of it, the ICO has an important role in world trade.

What all this means for us is that our venue has top quality facilities and, on a less practical but very inspiring note, quite often is perfumed with the wonderful aroma of coffee.
