Will you be in Kansas City this week for the SCAA United States Barista Championship Qualifying Events? We will be. Here are our priorities for the week. We hope to see you at the event!
I-70 Collaboration Panel & Social:
We’re co-hosting a great event on Wednesday night (Feb. 3) at Quay Coffee. We’ll start the evening with a panel discussion on the relevance of multi-roaster coffee bars. The panel will feature Jordan Michelman of Sprudge.com, Lorenzo Perkins of Fleet Coffee, Cory Stipp of Quay Coffee, and Jeff Taylor of PT’s coffee. After the panel, there will be plenty to eat and drink from vendors on both sides of the state. The photo bus will also be on hand to capture some fun.
Blueprint Sponsorship Table:
As a proud sponsor of the event, we’ve been given the opportunity to exhibit at the event. So, we’ll be serving free coffee Tuesday through Friday. Please stop by the booth to enjoy coffee and feel free to ask us about wholesale opportunities if you’re so inclined.

Radames Roldan: Barista Championship – Eastern Division
