Last weekend in downtown Dallas, coffee lovers gathered for a 3-day event at the Kay Bailey Hutchinson Convention Center. Coffee Fest Dallas 2016 held its annual gathering for coffee and tea professionals to showcase their brews and sample, along with learning new skills and networking with fellow coffee lovers. The two biggest highlights from the event were the Successful Coffeehouse Business Seminar and the Drink Innovations Lab.
