There’s an exciting event happening on Saturday, July 20th at Allegro Coffee in Thornton, Colorado. Our good friend Josh Taves of Dogwood Coffee Roasters sent along this information:

It is being put on by the Rocky Mountain Craft Coffee Alliance in conjunction with the Barista Guild of America and will have speakers from Dogwood, Allegro, Coffee Shrub, Roasters Guild, BGA, as well as some recognized Denver coffee professionals.

The TED of Coffee, you say? Yes! We love TED. It got us thinking about TED’s history, and the important and prolific speakers in coffee they’ve invited on the coveted TED stage (and some TEDx subsidiary stages around the world). Please see our separate post for a rundown of The 7 Greatest “Like TED For Coffee” Talks In History.
