The Seattle Center hosted the 2011 Northwest Coffee Festival
over Father's Day weekend (June 18 and 19).
Batdorf & Bronson® Coffee Roasters was one of the featured roasters at the Manual Brew Bar.
We had some amazing coffees: Guatemala Antigua Finca El Valle Kenya AA Top Auction Lot Kiunyu Timbales Organic Dancing Goats Dancing Goats Decaf
Each of these stellar selections was featured hot and iced, fresh brewed by hand using Chemex brewers. This weekend's Batdorf & Bronson baristas were: Dan Graham, Wholesale Trainer Sandra Hall, South Sound Sales and Support Emily Jackson, Roaster and Retail Trainer Brian Meyers, Roaster and Production Manager Marcus Young
, Portland Evangelist
Consumer focused (versus Trade) shows are always great events, and allow us to talk about coffee with an engaged group of consumers. The Northwest Coffee Festival organizers should be commended for putting together a fantastic program featuring some of Puget Sound's best coffee companies and drawing a huge crowd to celebrate fine coffee.
In addition to
working the booth Emily Jackson
participated in Saturday's latte art throwdown on the festival stage and Marcus Young
judged the informal competition which showcased the pouring skills of some of the country's top baristas.
