New York City – Next Weekend

One week from today, Coffee Fest New York will be underway. If you’re going to Santa Cruz, Calif. instead for the Southwest Regional Barista Competition, we get that. That’s cool. But you’re still going to be miss one heckofa weekend in the Big Apple!

Last time Coffee Fest dropped by Gotham, it set up shop across the Hudson in the Meadowlands of New Jersey. (Hey, if the two football teams that play there can call themselves “New York” there’s no reason trade shows can’t do the same!) But this time, the event is right in the heart of Manhattan, in Midtown at the Javits Center.

In addition to the always-awesome activities and classes surrounding the trade show (like the New World Latte Art Championship sponsored by Barista Magazine where the champion will win $2500) there’s also a slew of things going on that you can only do in New York, like seeing “Coffee: The Musical!”

We can’t wait, so come see us in New York next week!
