In addition to its regular booth at the Annual Specialty Coffee Association of America’s Exposition in Atlanta April 16-19, BUNN will offer visitors the opportunity to take a break at its “Books and BUNN” event. The new feature will be located at Booth 124, while the official BUNN’s SCAA Booth will be nearby at Booth 123.

SCAA attendees can browse (and buy) books by coffee authors Susan Zimmer, Mark Pendergrast, and Tim Castle at “Books and BUNN” while enjoying a complimentary espresso beverage from the BUNN Espress Tiger. The authors will be featured at an SCAA education session called “Penning the Perfect Cup: Writing About Coffee,” from 10:30 a.m. to noon, Sunday, April 19, in room A403 of the Georgia World Congress Center. Long-time friend of specialty coffee Margaret Swallow will moderate a discussion among these three popular authors, who will explain their very different approaches to the subject of coffee. After the session, from 12:30 to 4 p.m., the authors will meet trade show attendees and sign books at “Books and BUNN” Booth 124.
