Heads up, java junkies: Tickets for the third-annual Kansas City Caffeine Crawl went on sale today, and organizers say they’re selling fast.
By Sarah Gish
The three-day event takes place November 1-3 (a Friday, Saturday and Sunday) and features tours of local coffee shops from western Johnson County to Raytown. The Caffeine Crawl’s website is selling tickets for guided bus tours, bike tours and discounted passes that allow you to carpool with friends between shops. One-day passes cost $24-32 apiece, and a three-day pass costs $80.
Each stop on the tour features coffee tastings (some shops will have tea and artisan chocolate tastings, too) and short, informational talks by baristas and other local coffee experts.
Plan to go? It might be a good idea to start building your caffeine tolerance now.
Here’s a list of local coffee shops participating in this year’s Caffeine Crawl, which kicks off Specialty Coffee and Tea Week in Kansas City.
