Kansas City Caffeine Crawl Creating Local Buzz

Kansas City Caffeine Crawl, November 1st – 3rd at various locations around the KC metro – schedules inside!

It’s time, folks! Caffeine Crawl returns to Kansas City for a whirlwind weekend of caffeinated celebration. It’s our 3rd KC Crawl and the 16th overall, and the buzz is building! This is where it all started in the fall of 2011.

The eyes of the coffee world will be on our hometown for the weekend of November 1-3 as we highlight the passionate people on both sides of the bar in one of the strongest emerging coffee cultures in the country. In Caffeine Crawl tradition, artisan chocolate and tea join the talented lineup. There are plans for Barista Nation, an educational coffee industry event with classes and training, to kick everything off on Friday and pull in experts from the area and around the country. All of these activities will launch Specialty Coffee and Tea Week in Kansas City.

We’ve got three days of Crawls scheduled so participants can work around their weekend schedules, Friday night, Saturday, and Sunday. Also added are new transportation options. For those who would rather take themselves from shop to shop, that’s possible on one route per day, and Friday night has a bike route—a first for KC. Our widely diverse selection of shops ranges from KC’s historical roasters to newer shops and the Crawl’s territory expands from west Johnson County to Raytown. The Crawl will put the spotlight on the country’s best brewing tactics, single-origin beans, perfect pairings, and highest level of tea and chocolate.

Ticket holders will receive event packets filled with cool schwag and programs. To buy tickets and get schedule times, just click the pic below!
