Coffee Supreme And TED2014

Coffee Supreme And TED2014

Great minds thinking alike

This March Coffee Supreme is proudly supplying freshly roasted coffee to both the TED2014 and TEDActive events being held in Canada. Coffee Supreme has partnered with World Coffee Events to supply 2014 TED events with special espresso and filter roasts as TED celebrates its 30th anniversary. Supreme’s coffee will be featured in 7 full-service bars across all the TED venues. These specially selected coffees will be served on La Marzocco espresso machines, as well as through 3 manual brew methods (V-60, Aeropress, and Chemex) by a team of volunteer professional baristas drawn from across North America.

Coffee Supreme coffee will be available daily during TED from March 17-21st at all coffee bars. Coffee Supreme will be posting photos from TED2014 through its Instagram account during the event.

‘We’re very proud that our own creativity can be showcased in front of some of the world’s leading thinkers and creative minds’ says Al Keating, Managing Director at Coffee Supreme.

TED2014 is an invite-only event with attendees coming from around the world and a range of backgrounds, including CEOs, scientists, designers, and intellectuals. 1400 attendees are expected at TED2014 which will be held in Vancouver and about 700 at TEDActive which will be held in Whistler. TED is a unique nonprofit, nonpartisan foundation that draws together some of the world’s greatest thinkers and doers to help spread ideas at the forefront of technology, entertainment, design, culture, and science. Each TED event presents fresh groups of contributing speakers, each delivering inspiring and provocative talks in TED’s famous 18 minute format. Past speakers have come from diverse backgrounds, including educators, entrepreneurs, activists, authors, philosophers, physicists, cyber-specialists, creatives and more. At TED2014, notable speakers include Bill and Melinda Gates, author of ‘Eat Pray Love’ Elizabeth Gilbert, British music producer Mark Ronson, and Chris Hadfield, astronaut and former Commander of the International Space Station.
