Hi Topher,
I would love to attend, but I do not know anyone to travel with me. Is this an event that a home roaster would enjoy?? Do I need to be employed by a coffee company to attend?? I would love to learn more about coffee, but I am not sure that I would be welcome, because I do not work in the industry.

If you want to learn about coffee then SCAA is better than CoffeeFest. They are both trade show for people in or planning to be in the coffee business. There are "how to" classes, but CoffeeFest is gear toward people looking at the latest products and not really about learning coffee per se.

Thanks for the tip! The last time I drove through Chicago, the potholes where so big, I thought they where going to rip the axles right off my car! I will wait until May, and fly to Long Beach.

I plan to go....it's only a few hours away. I'm not in business yet, but plan to be soon. Anyway, it's only a short drive and not too expensive. So I should be there!

good thing I am not going...I dont do well in 35 degree weather...negative 35 would be the death of me. I am sure my windbreaker ie. winter coat would not cut it!

Atlanta here, as well!

Considering that I live in the area, I'm extremely excited that CoffeFest will be held here this year!

Who woulda thunk it? :wink:
