Coffee Fest Parties This Weekend

26 10 2010

Here is your specialty coffee party directory for Coffee Fest weekend (ok, it’s not much of a “directly” as there’s only two public parties going on but, hey, it’s only Coffee Fest, not SCAA):

Coffee Fest Seattle Kick Off Party

Thursday, Oct 28, 6-10pm
Hotel Andra Ballroom
2000 4th Ave

Get your kicks at the uber trendy Hotel Andra with folks from Roast Magazine, Batdorf & Bronson, Espresso Supply, iSi, Monin, Theta Ridge, and Caffe D’Amore.

Victrola’s Brew Ha Ha

Saturday, Oct 30, 7-11pm
Victrola Coffee Roasters
310 E. Pike

Costume party + latte art competition + manual brew competition. Espresso Parts is throwing in the prizes. La Marzocco USA is providing the espresso machine and the new Marco hot water towers. Killer music sets by DJ Shvr (alt ego Kliff at Visions Espresso) and Token Folk (whose Ifthen Loki’s alt ego is Luke at LM USA). Undoubtedly, this is THE party this weekend. More party details here.

Download Token Folk’s album for free here.

[UPDATED] The partimeisters at Sprudge.com has also made their own posting about the parties this weekend. Here are a couple more:
