  • Presentation by Les Stoneham
    • Besides the fact that he's a likable guy, there are plenty of reasons to get excited about Les giving a presentation at the Bash. Working with coffee since 2003, Les has been intimately involved in just about every aspect of coffee production and preparation. He heads up the Espresso Guild's training and customer education programs, has spent time on coffee farms with producers in Guatemala, and has competed in both regional and national barista competitions.
  • Cupping Classes
    • Interested in learning the fine art of coffee tasting? There will be three cupping classes (starting at 9:00, 9:30, and 10:00) taught by the very competent roasters and baristas at Sunergos. They will be explaining methodology and doing a bit of comparison between coffee origins.
  • Brewing Demos and FREE COFFEE!
    • We will keep the coffee flowing just as we did at the last Bash. From 8:00 on we will be serving fine coffees with the following methods:
      • V60
      • Chemex
      • Cafe Solo
      • French Press
      • Syphon
