Caffeine Crawl kicks off Specialty Coffee Week in September
Coffee nerds have a lot more choices these days around the city. And you can benefit from their fanatical devotion to single-origin, pour-over brews when the Caffeine Crawl returns next month. The event, which visited a dozen coffee shops in 2011, has expanded to a two-day tour (tickets are only available for Sunday, September 16) as part of a kick-off to what organizer Jason Burton of the Lab is calling Specialty Coffee Week.
“It’s amazing what’s happened in just a year. People are really focused on finding a great cup of coffee,” Burton says.
The Sunday tour — tickets costs $30 — will feature stops at E.F. Hobbs, the Filling Station, Latteland, Mud Pie, Quay Coffee, Revocup Coffee Roasters and the Roasterie. Each will have a signature drink and offer insight into how they select and pour their coffee. Children are welcome on the tour; there will be caffeine-free options, but they have to purchase a ticket.
