ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Coffee vendors from across the country will descend on downtown St. Louis this weekend for an annual trade show devoted to the industry.
The Coffee Fest trade show at the America’s Center convention complex runs Friday through Sunday. The beverage industry event is one of three held yearly, with similar events in New York and Portland, Oregon.
One St. Louis business is in the competition for recognition as “America’s Best Coffeehouse.” Sump Coffee is one of six regional finalists in the competition. The winner of this weekend’s event advances to the national finals in Portland in October.
