Now Accepting Speaker & Topic Submissions for Upcoming Bloom Events

Barista Guild of America introduced the Bloom event series in the Spring of 2016 in Los Angeles. Bloom events have also taken place in Chicago and San Francisco, and the BGA is in the process of organizing upcoming events in 2018. A unique event for the coffee community, Bloom brings together some of the best minds in coffee, creating the opportunity for deeper discussion and engagement for attendees.

Bloom features thought-leaders, all of whom will present topics that specifically address the craft coffee community. An interactive discussion between speaker and attendees follow each talk, creating the opportunity for meaningful dialogue. The outcomes of these discussions – ideas, challenges, and solutions are reviewed, recorded, and distributed for after each event.

Bloom is a forum that was created to allow the coffee community to progress together. The mission of this event is to ignite a national conversation and make noticeable the ideas that emerge as a result. If you have an idea for a topic or speaker that could contribute to this effort, you are encouraged to submit a nomination.

If your topic or speaker is selected, event content organizers will be in touch to identify the appropriate event location for the presentation. Questions? Please get in touch at research@sca.coffee.
