Baratza at SCAA 2015 – BOOTH 10041 (South Hall)
Wow – only one week away from The Event that is #SCAA2015. Once again, we’ll be in our hometown of Seattle for this 27th Specialty Coffee Association of America Expo! It’s going to be a hugely exciting few days of connecting with our customers and the Specialty Coffee community – at our headquarters, in our booth, at parties, at competitions, and all over town! It feels like we will be everywhere! We’re excited to be a part of so many brewing set ups from pop up cafes to in-booth for support of product demoes. Our sincere thanks in advance to all our customers and partners who have chosen to use our grinders at the Event. Here’s what we’ve go going on – so far!
All day, every day – Kyra Kennedy and Kyle Anderson, Baratza co-owners and fearless leaders will be in the booth, as well as Joyce Klassen (Marketing), Sarah Dooley (Education), Karen Kawaguchi (International Operations) plus Colin Francois, Pierce Jens and Amy Elliott from our support team! Come and check out our complete line up of grinders – home and commercial. In addition, we’ve got some new accessories from a new local start-up called Got Itt!
Come taste great coffee from a rotation of wonderful roasters, including Stumptown, Tony’s, IPC, Anodyne, Temple, ChocolateFishCoffee, Kuma and Klatch.
