What is it like for a woman in coffee? Why don't more women compete? These questions and many more will be discussed in this very first episode of The Coffeewoman. Hosted at The Drugstore, there will be two panel discussions to get a good dose of perspectives- The Coffee Professional & The Coffee Competitor- featuring some seriously experienced women of coffee sharing their personal views on these topics. In fact, this has become so hot a topic, that the event has actually filled up! There will be video coverage (thanks Sprudge!), so make sure to visit the Facebook event page for updates on that!
WEDNESDAY WELCOME PARTY
6 - 9 PM
Joining forces to show you a good time are La Marzocco & Kaldi's Coffee Roasting Co. A swanky little spot, The Kill Devil Club is located a few blocks from the convention center in the downtown KC's Power & Light District. Come on out and feel all the welcomes!
7 - 10 PM
Wanting to dig a little deeper on the topic of multi-roaster style cafes? Quay Coffee & Blueprint Coffee are teaming up to facilitate that very conversation. Join them and their stellar panel (see above) at 7:00pm down in the historic River Market area. Need more motivation? They'll have one classy take on the classic- pizza and booze! Music by RADAMES
3:30 - 5:30 PM
Curious about the Steampunk and Modbar? BrewGallery has got you covered, hosting a training & practice at their shared workspace in Lenexa, KS. With reps from ModBar and Alpha Dominche, plus complimentary drinks from Boulevard Brewing, Thou Mayest, Torn Label Brewing, Maps Coffee, Hugo Tea, The LAB and Snow & Co, this happy hour is bound to be seriously happy!
@MORTON HALL - 3936 MAIN ST
DOORS @ 7 - POURS @ 8
Come bask in the warmth of the KC coffee community. We're all (no, really!) hosting a big old latte art throwdown, fundraiser for Noah's Bandage Project, pop-up retail (vintage clothing and vinyl), live music, beer, and raffles- oh my! Doors open at 7- be there on time if you want a slot in the throwdown- the brackets will fill up fast. Buy-in is $10. We're using a 48 person bracket with some byes that will be raffled and finishing with 3 finalists pouring in the final round. Judges may choose a winner from the 3 pours, or choose to eliminate one pour and have the top 2 repour for the $500 win. Pours start at 8 pm. Grudge matches will start later in the evening as well! All proceeds are for charity here, so we welcome your contributions of cash and rad bandages for Noah's Bandage Project. Just save a little scratch for raffles, vintage clothing from Cable and Company, and records from The Vinyl Underground! That shouldn't be too hard since the beer's on us! (Bring your ID)
Did you know that Kansas City has one of the fastest growing art scenes in the country? Pretty crazy, right? While February isn't the most ideal time to be traipsing around KC, checking out our Crossroads area is a great way to unwind after a week filled with caffiene. If you need a little oasis on your journey, Thou Mayest has you covered on coffee, cocktails and some serious jams. Always remember to #takefunseriously ;)
