After a successful inaugural event earlier this spring, the Barista Guild of America is hosting the second edition of their three-day coffee conference. Taking place October 26-28th, Bloom Chicago will feature speakers from both inside and outside the coffee industry to provide insight on an array of topics, looking to create “a unique opportunity for deeper discussion and engagement for attendees.”
According to the website:
This year’s speakers include Chicago restaurateur and 2015 James Beard Award winner Donnie Madia, Four Letter Word Coffee and Whiner Beer Co. co-founder Ria Neri, and Intelligentsia’s Vice President of Retail and emcee extraordinaire Marcus Boni. Topics of discussion will include being present, the value of perspective, and carving a career in coffee.
And if you are unable to make it out to Chicago, Bloom will be hosting satellite events across the country, where the talks will be streamed a few hours after they occur.
