All-Day, Unlimited Coffee Tasting
What better scenario can you imagine than spending an entire Saturday sipping coffee samples by some of the top artisan roasters? More than 20 roasters (i.e. Blue Bottle, Booskerdoo, Cafe Grumpy, Georgio’s, Irving Farm, La Colombe, Modcup, Native Coffee, Oren’s Daily Roast, Scotty D’s Jamaican Blue Mountain, Toby’s Estate and Unique Coffee) will be present to talk shop, and attendees will get to taste and compare more than 100 different coffees and brewers. There’s no limit to how much you can have, people! Plus, local bakers and confectioners will have tasty treats on-hand to pair perfectly with all that joe.
In addition to the one-on-one time they’ll get to chat with coffee experts on the exhibit floor, CoffeeConners will have the unique experience of taking a variety of classes hands-on classes to sharpen their brewing skills. From mastering the art of Turkish coffee with Turkish Coffee World to learning the craft of blending coffee with chocolate from Li-Lac Chocolates, there’s more than one class you’ll want to hit up. A 2.5-hour interactive seminar led by George Howell (a limited ticket event) will also help people understand the ins-and-outs of coffee making, plantation to cup.
