CoffeeCon L.A. 2016
Saturday, January 30, 2016 from 9:00 AM to 4:00 PM (PST)
This coffee tasting and brewing extravaganza features many of Los Angele’s finest specialty roasters, numerous hands-on labs and classes, and engaging dialogue between consumers and specialty-coffee leaders. High-end coffee brewers and other gear will be given away during our prize giveaways. All our welcome; this is an inclusive event for all levels of coffee drinkers—from novice to expert.
CoffeeCon is the world’s first coffee festival whose focus is on coffealogy(from Latin ‘coffea’ for coffee; and from Greek ‘-λογία,’ -logia) for the consumer. While many other coffee-themed events are largely business-focused, CoffeeCon is focused on the enjoyment and enrichment of all coffee consumers wishing to learn more about coffealogy and their options as highly conscious coffee drinkers.
Try everything by tasting 100 different coffees from both local and national specialty roasters side-by-side. Experience coffee varying in nearly every conceivable variable; from bean varietal, to growing practices, processing methods, roast profile, and brewing methods—you will literally drink the cost of the admission fee and enjoy the rare opportunity to thoroughly compare coffees brewed to perfection.
CoffeeCon’s classes are a big part of your value in attending. Pick and choose from different classes and topics running continuously throughout the day. Top baristas teach hands-on pour over labs where everyone gets to try out the gear and refine their brewing skills. No advance registration or extra fees. General admission is all you need.
Prizes: $3000+ in top-model coffee brewers and other items given away at scheduled times. This includes a Behmor Brazen, Bonavita Thermal 8-cups, more than ten glass-blown Chemexs, some Bonavita kettles, and the new Chemex Ottomatic. Your ticket number is your friend, so hang onto it. Kids under 12 are free—we want all parents the opportunity to raise their children right when it comes to coffee.
In addition to coffee we will have high-end chocolatiers, bakeries, and food trucks nearby.
I, Kevin Sinnott, have spent the past twenty years researching on how to drink the best coffee. It’s all here at CoffeeCon. I’ve personally selected every presenter and topic. My focus is on you and a lifetime of coffee enjoyment.
