Coffee Convo Episode 3

Wow! So much to talk about! We’re freshly back from CoffeeFest Los Angeles 2018 and ready to roll! Here are the show notes. 

Coffee Fest LA 2018
Describe exhibit hall.
Cold brew is hot!
Talk about classes. Any that stood out to you?
Cool gadgets we brought home.
Tasted amazing coffees from Brazil and Haiti.
Met some wonderful people. (Josh of Metronome Coffee in Tacoma, Joey of Cafe Kreyol)
Expensive food anyone?

Next CoffeeFest is New York in March 2019, then Indianapolis in May 2019, and Los Angeles again in August 2019.

More than one vendor told Anthony the New York one is ginormous, more so than LA. It’s at the Javits Center.
