Coffee Expo 2018 - We are coming for you, Seattle!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! That’s right, it’s almost time for some of the world’s most dedicated coffee professionals and enthusiasts to nerd-out over one of life’s greatest gifts at the 2018 Specialty Coffee Expo in Seattle. In this post, we've covered our plans, what to expect, and how to follow us.

Our 2017 Coffee Expo Post-Show Report

When coffee professionals from all over gather each year for the annual Specialty Coffee Expo, you know it's going to be a whirlwind of a weekend. Sample bags of beans are doled out to prospective clients, business cards are shoved deftly into new hands, smiles abound and the coffee flows more freely than the water does (seriously, it's sometimes tough to stay hydrated at these things!). There are a half dozen parties every night, the local coffee shops put on special menus and polish up their service, and every Airbnb in the area will suddenly find itself laden with grinders and brewing wares. It's a phenomenal sight to behold and such a thrill to take part in - every year we leave impressed, exhausted, and excited for the weeks to come.

The 2018 Global Coffee Expo: That’s All Folks!

All good things must come to an end. At least that’s what Chaucer said. And sadly, that is true for the 2018 Specialty Coffee Expo. But melancholy aside, this year’s Expo was definitely a success. We saw a bunch of new products, exchanged numerous business cards, recorded hours of video, watch baristas compete, drank too much coffee, had too little sleep, and had a lot of fun!
