Esther Short Park: 301 W 8th St.

9am – 3pm

$20-40, kids under 12 Free

 

America’s number one Cold Brew Fest is happening right here in Vancouver! Cold brew is created by steeping medium-to-coarse ground coffee in room temperature water for 12 hours or longer and then filtering out the grounds. Unlike regular coffee, cold brew is never exposed to heat and produces a smoother, less acidic coffee drink.

 

  • Sample some of the best cold brews in the country and vote for your favorite. Modern Times, Dillanos, Kafiex Roasters, Elevator, Riff, Trident, and Seven Virtues are some of the coffee roasters that will be available.
  • Learn about the process of coffee from farm to cup.
  • Take part in a coffee auction to benefit women coffee farmers.
  • Enjoy live music.
  • Food vendors on-site
