Humans have been telling stories over coffee for over 500 years. We hope to honor that tradition by inviting some of our favorite local coffee professionals to share their stories with us. How did they get started? What is their process? What is the craziest thing they've done for the love of coffee? These are just some of the questions they may answer in front of our coffee-crazy crowd.
Our lineup of coffee pros includes:
Eric Andersen (FreshGround Roasting, Geneva)
Dan Colbert (Zoom Doggy Coffee, North Aurora)
Marcus and Jenni Contaldo (Modest Coffee, West Chicago)
Chad Dawes (Tredwell Coffee, Aurora)
Sarah Harms (Kindred Coffee Roasters, West Chicago)
Leah Leman and Joy Mason (Limestone Coffee & Tea, Batavia)
Pete Leonard (I Have a Bean, Wheaton)
Cody Lorance (Endiro Coffee, Aurora)
We have encouraged them to bring items for sale, such as beans, shirts, mugs, etc., so be prepared to stock up on some sweet coffee swag.
Seating is limited to 70. Tickets are $7.50 during online presale or $10 at the door. All proceeds go to support the continuation of arts programming at Water Street Studios, a nonprofit art center located in Batavia, Illinois.
Doors and cocktail hour at 6 p.m.
Performance begins at 7 p.m.
Enjoy a cash bar featuring beverages provided by Solemn Oath Brewery and Whiskey Acres Distilling Co.
