Get ready for a caffeine jolt this Saturday when the San Antonio Coffee Festival runs from noon to 5 p.m. at La Villita on South Alamo Street at Nueva.

The event will feature locally roasted and artfully brewed coffees from all over the world. Visitors can appreciate the many masterful hands that pilot a coffee bean from crop to cup, all while tasting, learning and shopping. Roastmasters will offer information about coffee’s origins, growing and harvesting, roasting, grinding, blending, brewing, cupping, food recipes, fair trade, bird-friendly, and organic certifications as well as health benefits.

The Specialty Coffee Tasting Flight is the highlight of the San Antonio Coffee Festival, showcasing more than 30 coffees. Coffee Tasting Flight tickets include four-cup tastings and are available for purchase ($5) at the event. Packaged coffee is available for purchase.

Among the local Texan coffee companies exhibiting will be Bantai Civet Coffee, Ferra Coffee, La Bella Vita Gourmet, RedBud Roasters, Independence Coffee, JavaJack’s Coffee, KIVA Coffee Roasters and Fara Coffee.
