having to shroud your activities under the shadow of the Evil Corporate Coffee
Empire! Yes, now we caffeine fiends can gather without
WHAT? You want a shot of espresso?! We got your
shot right here, pal. This event ain't no freebie. If you want
a cup, you gotta pony up. Coffee, that is. Whole bean. We're

You think you got what it takes? Then we'll take
what you got! Bring your best beans and put 'em up for judgment
by our over-qualified, over-caffeinated, (and over-rated) Coffee
Wars judges and contestant panel! We keep hearing that
someone else's beans are the best. Now it's time to
prove it bean-to-bean!
