coffee events

Probably the most common question I'm asked is, "where and when are events happening in coffee?"

Since specialty coffee became a thing (mid 90s? early 2000s? I am not sure - I started in 2006!) folks've gotten together to talk about it, taste it, play with it, and collaborate. Some cost money, some are free - and all have value.

Right now there isn't a super great, central listing of those events. Part of the reason is actually pretty simple: It's kind of annoying to get events posted online! 

I am going to make a pledge to you all that I will try my best to post every coffee-related public invitation I get from facebook to this calendar. It might not be pretty, but it will be here.

I highly, highly, highly encourage YOU to do the same -- post here! I've created a submission link that let's you easily post up some event info. It doesn't have to be pretty, but if you make it pretty, it'll almost always look better than what I've put up!
