2nd Annual Milwaukee Coffee Festival

The Milwaukee Coffee Festival is the brainchild of TJ Sizemore, founder of the MKE Coffee Guild. According to TJ, the festival grew out of the tastings he hosts. “The idea came from our monthly coffee tastings where people would ask me about all the roasters we were tasting. A festival seemed like a great way to give the roasters their own stage to connect with the locals.” The festival will feature Milwaukees best coffee roasters including Stone Creek Coffee, Anodyne Coffee Roasting Co. and Fiddlehead Coffee Roaster and Artisan Bakery. The festival will also offer classes on the science of coffee presented by Steve Hawthorne, owner of Hawthorne Coffee, the sustainability of coffee presented by Christian Ott, Director of Coffee for Stone Creek Coffee Co., and a home roasting demo presented by John Burman, owner of Burman Coffee Traders. The event’s focus is education, but it’s also a place where coffee lovers can meet and connect through coffee. “This festival has to be a place where anyone can come to learn about coffee,” says Sizemore. “Attendees can expect to connect with local roasters and with other coffee drinkers. We will have classes they can take, coffee they can drink, food they can taste. They can expect a celebration of milwaukee's other favorite brew.” The festival is free to the public and runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, September 20th at Urban Ecology Center - Riverside Park, 1500 E Park PL on Milwaukee’s Eastside.
