Guide to Seattle Coffee Fest 2012
If it looks like coffee, smells like coffee, goes well with coffee or is coffee you will find it at Coffee Fest, September 21 – 23. Everything under the sun that would be found in an upscale coffee shop on either side of the counter, including the counter would be found on the exhibition floor at Seattle’s Coffee Fest 2012. The best coffee retail education, training and workshops are found at Coffee Fest.
Coffee Fest has been celebrating coffee long before coffee was “hot”. In 1992, coffee professionals came together in Seattle for their first consumer coffee festival. Now “the little coffee show that could” hosts three annual trade shows across all regions of the country. Coffee Fest remains the industry’s top-performing show, consistently providing retailers with relevant information to hone their business skills and up their bottom line.
