What is Bloom?

The Barista Guild is excited to bring you Bloom, a unique event for the coffee community. Bloom brings together some of the best minds in coffee, creating a unique 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 and for take-away after each event. Bloom is a forum by which the coffee community can progress together in real-time.

Bloom is more than just one standalone event. In order to meaningfully connect the local and national barista community through dialogue and action, we are offering multiple community driven Bloom events in four different regions. These events weave in the same national presentations coupled with their own local thought-leaders. 

Bloom's mission is to ignite a national conversation and make noticeable the ideas that emerge as a result.
