New this year, the festival will present Coffee Convos, specially curated panel talks where attendees can learn about coffee inside and out, from technical skills to business operations. Also part of the festival are live performances from California-based acts Spooky Mansion, Anchor & Bear, Little Monarch, and more, as well as on-site exhibitions and activations, including local artist Jarold Cadion, who will be making art out of coffee grounds, and non-profit body positivity organization Movemeant Foundation, which will lead a workshop with Dailey Method. Additional exhibitors include Brew Dr Kombucha, Topo Chico, Coffee Manufactory, Boba Guys, Boot Coffee Campus, SAKU tea, and many more.
