About Coffee Fest
Coffee Fest has been celebrating coffee long before coffee was “hot”. In 1992, they gathered coffee professionals together in Seattle for their first coffee festival. After several years of hosting thriving consumer events, Coffee Fest turned its focus toward the specialty coffee, gourmet tea and alternative beverage industry bringing retailers, distributors and manufacturers together for its first retail “trade only show” in 1998. With a mission to help attendees build and refine their specialty coffee businesses, they coupled a relevant educational program with a friendly, informative, and enjoyable trade show floor creating a successful show that serves as a touchstone for many in the specialty coffee industry.
Today Coffee Fest produces three trade shows annually, strategically positioned in Atlanta, Chicago and Portland. Coffee Fest remains the industry’s top-performing show, consistently providing retailers with relevant information to hone their business skills and up their bottom line and manufacturers and service companies the face to face opportunities to build their businesses.
Nescafé coffee originated in Brazil in the 1930s as an early example of innovation and sustainable development. Building on Nestlé’s milk processing expertise, they developed soluble coffee helping thousands of Brazilian farmers avoid hardship and crop waste. They continue to support and work with farmers around the world. Having developed a way to make a quality cup of coffee simply by adding boiling water, Nescafé coffee was launched in Switzerland in 1938. Over the years, Nescafé product innovation has evolved further to capture even more of the natural aroma and flavor from every coffee bean. Today consumers around the world enjoy the quality, flavor, aroma, convenience and natural goodness of Nescafé coffee in many different formats.
