Barista Mag loves the Caffeine Crawl concept so much that we not only have been sponsoring it since it launched in 2011, but we feature articles about how cool the Crawls are after they take place. You can see some of the articles HERE.

Every cafe that participates in Caffeine Crawl makes a special treat for the Crawlers. At the Denver Caffeine Crawl, this flight was one of the treats. You can be sure Portland coffeehouses are going to go BIG in this category!

But wait ”there’s more! Each of the places that the Crawl stops will have prepared a special *something* for the Crawlers, be it a cupping, a custom drink, an equipment demo, or something so crazy we haven’t even thought of it yet. That is what makes the Crawls different than any other tours.
