Fall Crawl


Some of you may remember my post from last spring about the Caffeine Crawl, you can check it out here. Curious about whether a second crawl could live up to the fun of the first time, we bought tickets months ago (because it sells out fast!) and headed out yesterday on the yellow school bus for another round of coffee and chocolate in KC.
Our stops for the day included: Hi Hat Coffee, Annedore's Fine Chocolate, Broadway Cafe + Roasting Company, Kaldi's Coffee, PT's Coffee, All About Coffee and Parisi Artisan Coffee. The day focused on education and we each made our own latte with a milk coach, mixed a coffee blend of beans, learned about kitchen science with homemade coffee caviar and pomegranate pop rocks, taste-tested the difference between washed and natural coffee beans and performed pour overs.
It was another great day of tasting and exploring the city (and the weather cooperated this time, which was a nice surprise after it poured during the last crawl). The places we visited were generous and filled our bellies with everything from toddy-flavored cream puffs to chocolate covered popcorn and sent us home with beans to brew. The LAB, who organizes this and similar events across the country, is apparently working on a food and cocktail tour that should be hitting our Royal-blue city soon so stay tuned to their website and/or the blog and I will keep you posted!
