For many, coffee is a simple pleasure that can help kick start the day. Some enjoy it on the go, while others prefer a corner in a coffee shop listening to music. Regardless of your coffee preferences few can resist the perks (pun intended) of coffee for a good cause like the the java served at Coffee Fest.
On Saturday May 21st, Missouri Safe and Sober will be hosting Coffee Fest at the Farmer’s Market Pavilion. The festival benefits Missouri Safe and Sober, an organization that educates high school students about the dangers of driving and drinking. Nine different vendors will compete in a drip coffee taste test with 5 different categories that will include; house brew, dark roast, medium roast, single regional origin and slow brew. There will also be a category for best coffee shop, where people can vote for their favorite place to get a cup of Joe.
Country Girls Espresso will also have samples to taste test and Jack’s Bean will be there as well, offering their monthly subscription of coffee. During the event there will be giveaways every half hour and the first 1,000 people will get free doughnuts complimentary of St. George’s. Coffee Fest will also have coffee house music for guests to enjoy.
While you are at the market make sure to stop by to support a good cause and to get some good coffee! Coffee Fest will be held at the Farmer’s Park from 8 am to 1 pm and admission is $10.
