What is specialty coffee?

Specialty coffee is truly a farm to cup process. Each batch of coffee must be delicately handled and prepared in each stage: from the growing, to the harvesting, to the roasting, to the grinding and brewing. Our sponsors and participants work tirelessly to bring coffee to Sacramento that is sourced from worldwide small businesses and experts.

For more information on what makes a specialty coffee, check out the Specialty Coffee Association of America., or read Wikipedia’s entry.

Spread the coffee love!

Coffee is awesome. There are too many reasons to list why. It’s easy to forget, however, where our beloved coffee comes from. In addition to celebrating and tasting specialty coffee from farm to cup, event(s) may be ticketed to help give back and improve communities in coffee growing regions around the world. All proceeds will be donated to the following coffee-related non-profit organizations:
