I need advice. This idea was inspired by a parody that is done at science fiction and fantasy conventions here in Michigan. This was called the Chocolate Ritual, and I thought if they can do that, then I should start holding a Coffee Ritual. The computer geeks love coffee at the local science fiction and open source software convention. I will dress in a clergy costume and logo barista apron, and do a mock ceremony of grinding and brewing in a Bodum Santos French Press. We'll sing hymns about how much we love coffee.

I would like to make the event into a coffee tasting, and introduce true quality beans, and try to show people the differences. I've never even been to a coffee tasting though. Could you make any recommendations?
