There’s still time to sign up for the 2016 Southeast Roasters Consortium!
The 2016 Southeast Roasters Consortium is set to be an exciting three-day event, which begins Friday, March 18. For the 11th year, roasters from across the southeastern United States will gather to meet new folks and catch up with old friends, take part in educational sessions, and get caught up on new materials released by the Specialty Coffee Association of America in the past year.
Ally Coffee in Taylors, South Carolina, is delighted to be hosting this year’s event. Ally’s spacious lab and training center, conference facilities, classrooms, and espresso bar will offer attendees plenty of space to sharpen their skills and broaden their knowledge during the daytime workshops and sessions, and relax with one another during evening events.
And speaking of evening events, Barista Magazine is excited to be a beer sponsor for the opening night party!
Cost to attend the three-day event is $125 and includes breakfast/lunch each day, and dinner for one night. Sign up HERE.
