Once a year, the world's best baristas, roasters, bean buyers, retailers and coffee farmers come together for a three-day event to celebrate and promote coffee at the Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) annual conference & exhibition. This year's 20th anniversary event will be held May 2–5 at the Convention Center in Minneapolis, Minn., and will focus on the roots of the specialty coffee industry—quality-driven and community-based excellence.
Leading up to this great event, we're getting together with our friends at Café de El Salvador to give away 10 exhibition tickets available to serious coffee imbibers who live in or around Minneapolis or who are looking to travel to this year's event. In addition to the many coffee and tea products and like-minded coffee geeks on hand, this event also hosts the always exciting United States Barista Competition.
Whether you're a barista or bean counter, all you need to do to qualify is post your favorite coffee of the moment here by 4/21, and we'll pick winners at random to receive the tickets. And no matter if you're already attending or you win the chance to attend here, be sure to stop by the Imbibe booth (#729) to say hello!
**Update: We e-mailed ticket details to winners 4/21. Thanks for your comments!**
