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.Jackson said: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.
