We’ve just confirmed it: Saturday, Oct. 4th, Rachel Peterson, from the famed Hacienda La Esmeralda coffee farm in Panama, will be visiting PT’s Coffee Roasting Co. She will be the featured speaker at our Fall Barista Jam! You won’t want to miss this one…

What is a Barista Jam? Well, the idea is to gather coffee professionals together for a day of learning in a fun, comfortable atmosphere where everyone can be themselves and hopefully improve their coffee skills! At previous Jam’s we’ve had in attendance Tim Wendlboe, World Barista Champion, George Sabados from Australia, Andrew Hetzel of Cafe Makers, Mike and Heather Perry of Coffee Klatch and many others. We might even have a political candidate show up. You just never know who’s going to show up at a PT’s Jam! They are famous for their good times and barista “throw-downs.”

PT’s will provide lunch for all in attendance. Over lunch, Rachel Peterson will talk about her family farm. In case you haven’t heard of it, it’s a cute little coffee farm in Panama near Boquete. Oh, and they have a few cows too! LOL – Okay, so I’m having a little fun here. Hacienda La Esmeralda is the most famous coffee farm in the world. They produce arguably the best coffee in the world. Esmeralda has won first place in 12 coffee competitions over the last 5 years.

Even if you don’t come for the Barista Jam, show up over the lunch hour to hear Rachel talk about her family farm and the projects they are planning for the future.

This is PT’s first Meet the Producer, so please come and join us!

Mark your calendar for Saturday, October 4th, from 8am to 5pm. We will hold our Fall Barista Jam at our roasting facility in Topeka, KS.  Please call today to book your reservation.
