Peet's Coffee & Tea


Coffee cupping tonight Wednesday at Kaldi’s Coffee in Springfield

Kaldi’s Coffee in Springfield, located at 900 East Battlefield Road (in the same shopping center as Buffalo Wild Wings and Coldstone Creamery), will be hosting two coffee cuppings tonight, June 9 tomorrow, June 10, at 5:30 p.m and 6:30 p.m. Apparently the 5:30 event is full, so the second 6:30 event has now been opened so more people can attend. If you plan on attending, you should Kaldi’s at (417) 881-5466 to reserve a spot or on Twitter, you can direct message @Kaldis_Coffee.

Justin Medley from the Springfield Kaldi’s (on Twitter as @renewedvigor, but I think his updates are protected) will be there, and he is really hoping to find some Twitter users who will come to the cupping and live tweet the event cup by cup. My understanding is that Mike (North) Marquard from Kaldi’s headquarters in St. Louis (on Twitter professionally as @Kaldis_Coffee and personally as @mikenorth) will also be present for the event.

I won’t be able to make it tonight, but I encourage you to check it out. Kaldi’s coffee roasting is excellent these days, and I’ve found that if I haven’t roasted my own coffee for the weekend, Kaldi’s is a great place to stop and pick up some bulk beans or brew some right on site using a French press.
