Hampton Coffee Travels To Coffee Convention

Hampton Coffee Travels To Coffee Convention

Posted on April 28, 2013 to

A delegation of five members of the Hampton Coffee Company staff from different areas of the company traveled to Boston in April to participate and help sponsor the Specialty Coffee Association of America's 25th Annual Coffee Convention.  The trade show attracts people from throughout the coffee industry, from billion dollar coffee-related companies, all the way to coffee farmers that come to the convention to meet the staff of coffee bars that serve their coffee.

We were especially proud to help sponsor this year's convention once again and we had the opportunity to serve our hand-roasted coffee to the almost 10,000 attendees at the Friday morning Coffee Break at the show before the first educational workshops began.  This year, we chose to feature our new Southampton Organic Blend in recognition of our new Southampton Coffee Experience Store & Roastery set to open May 18.

 

Coffee Convention Boston 2013

 

Unfortunately, this year's convention ended on a tragic note.  We left to head home to New York on the Sunday night at the end of the convention, and it was the next day that the Boston Marathon Bombings occurred.  We had such a nice time in Boston and everyone was wonderful to our coffee delegation, so it was really upsetting knowing that we had literally just been there and that such a tragic event could happen to such a warm and welcoming city.
