Hampton Coffee Sends Delegation To International Coffee Convention

Hampton Coffee Sends Delegation To International Coffee Convention

Posted on April 23, 2012 to Photos

Hampton Coffee Company sent Long Island's largest delegation of coffee professionals to one of the birthplaces of the specialty coffee movement, Portland, Oregon, for the Specialty Coffee Association of America's annual coffee convention and trade show. Seven representatives of Hampton Coffee Company traveled to Portland recently for the four-day international event that draws nearly 10,000 coffee professionals from around the globe.

In addition to learning more about the specialty coffee business and bringing new ideas and methods home, Hampton Coffee Company was a sponsor of this year's convention. They hosted a convenion-wide coffee break, serving their award-winning Hampton Classic Blend coffee to the entire convention center. In addition, Hampton Coffee Company's Hampton Espresso Blend was the only espresso served at an espresso-tasting station manned by the world's top Barista Champions and Hampton Coffee Company's popular Organic Peru Norte coffee made it all the way to the Final Top 30 in the annual Coffee of the Year competition.

"We are so proud to have had the opportunity to actually be serving our hand-roasted coffee to literally thousands of fellow coffee professionals at the convention," said Hampton Coffee Company Roastmaster Dwight Amade. "To be walking around the convention center and see our logo everywhere right in Portland, where specialty coffee has its beginnings, was amazing!"
