Kansas City Celebrates Specialty Coffee Week with Caffeine Crawl

Coffee should be celebrated!

Agree? We thought so. Well, guess what, Kansas City? Now’s our chance to celebrate everyone’s favorite caffeinated beverage for an entire week. Introducing, Kansas City Specialty Coffee Week happening September 15th through the 21st, 2012!

Kansas City Specialty Coffee Week is the nation’s celebration of all things coffee. It’s an experience in which participating coffee shops, cafés and local restaurants create unique coffee-centered activities and specials for the public. You can expect discounted drinks (yippee!), new concoctions, special guests at shops and other activities that promote and highlight why Kansas City is a top 5 coffee city in the US. A full schedule of Kansas City Specialty Coffee Week events, including a home roaster’s competition, saison tasting and coffee vs. chocolate battle, can be found on the official website.

Believe it or not, this is not The Roasterie’s first Specialty Coffee Week experience. We are actually veterans of the event—we were an inaugural sponsor for Specialty Coffee Week in the mid-1990s! We are so proud that we were able to help pioneer this popular event and participate in it against nearly 10 years later!

Be sure to check out Caffeine Crawl Kansas City during Specialty Coffee Week! We will be participating in “the crawl that starts it all!” This crawl covers 14 coffee stops, including our very own Roasterie factory on Sunday, September 16th. Unfortunately, tickets are already sold out, so we expect a full house!

We are so lucky that Kansas City has become the home of Specialty Coffee Week! Hope to see you participate in the action September 15-21!
