Welcome, watchers near and far, to the 2nd installment of our LIVE Big Eastern Brewers Cup coverage! You're looking at the internet's only on-the-fly, off-the-cuff, all-inclusive report of everyone's favorite filter coffee comp. Come see what happens on day 2!
The next phase of the United States competition season is upon us! This weekend, the SCAA, the BGA, and sponsors like Prima present the Big Eastern Event. Watch with us – on the web or in the flesh – as Brewers Cup competitors bring their best, hoping for a spot on that national stage.
April has been a busy month for the coffee industry and we wanted to give you a quick summary:
Pack your bags and fasten your seatbelts — we're going to Boston! SCAA is back in Beantown for the 25th annual expo and you're invited. Join us!
Here at Prima, the office is buzzing in anticipation of this year's SCAA Expo, for its 26th incarnation in the legendary coffee town of Seattle.
Making an appearance at the SCAA's National Event in Houston in a couple of weeks will be Compak's new line of Fresh Grinders. This line, and specifically the K-10 Fresh, has piqued a lot of interest in the coffee world over the past few months. We've gathered as much information as we can about this grinder and wanted to update everyone as to what we've found out.
The end of the Big Eastern Brewers Cup is just about here! We've seen dozens of top notch services this weekend — and tasted most of their fabulous coffees — but now it's time to watch the last of them and learn which of the final 12 competitors our judges scored highest.
Another year has passed, and once again the big SCAA Event is upon us! In just over a week, our team will be headed to Atlanta to take part in the largest coffee industry event in the US, and we'll be packing a whole lot of awesome along for the ride. Want to know what's up with the Event this year? You know we've got you covered!
Eleven days and a thousand miles separate me from my last morning in Boston. Swag sorted, coffee stashed, and sleep recovered, I'm back to normal life in Louisville. Back to writing at a desk, breathing warm, Kentucky air and sleeping in my own bed. Back to wishing I was in Boston.
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.
Later this week, throngs of coffee professionals and enthusiasts will descend upon Seattle - and no, it's not just because it's Seattle on a Friday. The 2017 Global Specialty Coffee Expo (popularly referred to as simply "SCAA," or is it just "SCA" now?) is upon us, and you can bet that Prima will be joining in all the fun and festivities out in Seattle. But there's one big catch this year: we're going boothless!
