Summer brings with it a litany of fun things to do, and in my world that translates to sampling specialty beverages at some stellar events.
This month, our Barista Prima Coffeehouse® team just wrapped up a great activation at the Food Network Magazine Chicago Lounge. Great city, great food, great coffee… great time! They even incorporated Italian Roast into mini coffee gelato cones!
Brew Over Ice is in the midst of a mini sampling tour, sharing the joys of our versatile Keurig® brewing systems with stops at multiple blogger events, including the recent Bloggy Boot Camp in Charlotte, NC and the BlogHer Food event in Austin, TX. Next up on their schedule is our biggest stop yet: BlogHer’13, a massive show in Chicago in July. Get your tumbler ready! We’re brewing over ice!
The Green Mountain Coffee® brand has its hands full this month as an annual supporter and underwriting sponsor of the Burlington Discover Jazz Festival. For ten days each June, the city of Burlington, VT becomes the epicenter of cool, hosting world-class artists that both define and expand the parameters of jazz music (this year’s headliners include Bobby McFerrin, John Scofield, Branford Marsalis and the incomparable Dr. Lonnie Smith). An already vibrant music and arts scene virtually explodes during the Discover Jazz Festival, and thousands of locals and visitors alike congregate to share in the excitement and revelry. If you make it to the festival, keep an eye out for me – just look for the visibly over-caffeinated guy with a huge smile on his face!
Enjoy the magic of summer, and I hope to see you at an event real soon…
