Gathering the nation’s top coffee & tea professionals since 1992.
Coffee Fest has been celebrating coffee long before coffee was “hot”. In 1992, they gathered together coffee professionals in Seattle for their first coffee festival. After several years of hosting thriving events, Coffee Fest turned its focus toward the specialty coffee, gourmet tea and alternative beverage industry and brought retailers, distributors and manufacturers together for its first retail "trade show" in 1998. With a mission to help attendees build and refine their specialty coffee businesses, they coupled a relevant educational program with a friendly, informative, and enjoyable trade show floor creating a successful show that serves as a touchstone for many in the specialty coffee industry. Today Coffee Fest produces three trade shows annually, strategically positioned in the three U.S. regions (Eastern, Central & Western). Coffee Fest remains the industry’s top-performing show, consistently providing retailers with relevant information to hone their business skills and up their bottom line.
