From my blog on ROASTe:
This sounds like fun if you are a coffee enthusiast like me! In case you don't know yet about Kevin Sinnott, he is a nationally recognized coffee expert. He's the author of two books and a DVD (Coffee Brewing Secrets) on the subject. His latest book is called The Art & Craft of Coffee. Publishers Weekly has called it the best book on the subject in recent years. He hosts a blog about coffee related events and has quite a few video reviews discussing coffee related equipment on his YouTube channel that are worth checking out too.What are you doing Saturday, February 25th this year? I am going to CoffeeCon 2012. CoffeeCon will offer attendees many special guests, surprises and live entertainment planned for the First Consumer Coffee Event - Ever. The main focus will be that wonderful beverage we all love. And how we love it.
