4th Machine / Brewbar

by kglanville

The clock is a few ticks past midnight now, which leaves us just 3.5 days away from the start of this year’s WRBC. We are furiously making our final preparations for this year’s event and it promises to be spectacular.

Those who have attended the WRBC in the past may remember the tradition of the “Fourth Machine”, an opportunity for great coffee roasters to serve up an endless supply of free coffee to the public. This year we are hosting the Fourth Machine again, and have added a manual brew bar to the mix for those roasters seeking to showcase beautiful SO coffees. We’ve lined up some of the very best coffee companies in the US, including :

- Verve Coffee Roasters of Santa Cruz, Ca.

- Ritual Coffee Roasters of San Francisco, Ca.

- Equator Estate of San Rafael, Ca.

- Intelligentsia Coffee of Los Angeles, Ca.

- Kean Coffee of Newport Beach, Ca.

- La Mill Coffee of Alhambra, Ca.

- Zoka Coffee of Seattle, Wa.

- Caffe Luxxe of Santa Monica, Ca.

Top notch pastries offered by Cake Monkey Bakery of Los Angeles, Ca.
