Last minute SCAA instructions
Salon I at the Embassy Suites hotel is now setup for our cupping and the Kaapi Royale Challenge! Please stop in anytime from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM on Friday. Ground floor in the main lobby, just look for the electronic or printed sign that says Kaapi Royale Coffee.
When coming from the GWCC (convention center) bear left leaving the main SCAA entrance or straight ahead out of the WBC entrance and look for the green Embassy Suites logo directly ahead. You can get an aerial perspective of the layout from our map.
Stairs on the left-hand side of the Omni hotel lead you down the the street level, then walk across to the Embassy Suites main lobby.
Estimated walk time is only 5 minutes, so feel free to drop in at your convenience throughout the day.
Organized cuppings of all the coffees will be run every 2 hours beginning at 9:00 AM, but will also be available on-demand. If you have any questions questions, call me directly anytime at +1 (808) 990-8717 or reply by email.
On Saturday afternoon at the Nuova Simonelli booth #233 beginning at 4:00 PM, we will have the same coffees from the cupping available as single origin espresso shots and also announce the Challenge winners at 5:00 PM.
We’ll see you there!
