On Nov. 1, our pals at The Roasterie are hosting their annual Sweet Bean Competition in Kansas City, Mo. This is a very fun event where local bartenders and mixologists will come together to pair The Roasterie’s coffee with other beverages to create a winning recipe. Kansas City area French presses will be ready for battle right next to shakers, muddlers and blenders.

Sweet Bean 2007 will be held at one of Kansas City’s best-kept secrets, Screenland Theatre, in the Crossroads District. The event kicks off at 6 p.m., and the night will be full of entertainment beyond the competition. Tickets can be purchased at theroasterie.com, or by calling 816.931.4000. Proceeds will benefit Water Partners.

We’ll be there helping to judge the drinks, so if you’re in the area, be sure to stop by!
