NRA 2015: Find Royal Cup at Booth 1125

Reading time: 2 minutes

Royal Cup is proud to announce that we will be heading up north to beautiful Chicago, Il for the National Restaurant Association Show May 15th-19th. 

As a proud multi year partner with the NRA, we’re very excited to bring the finest coffee available back for 2015!

Royal Cup is excited to showcase a host of fine products for everyone to try, along with some fun giveaways and special guests.

Our very own H.C. Valentine craft roasting team will be in attendance at booth 1125, with a pour-over brewing station to satisfy even the most trained coffee palate. H.C. Valentine will have everything from the exotic Kenyan Flame Tree to the extraordinarily complex H.C. Valentine Signature Blend in rotation.  So be sure to stop by and try some of our exquisite specialty coffees.

We are also proud to give a big Royal Cup welcome to 2013 World Barista Champion Pete Licata!  Pete will be mixing specialty drinks for those visiting our booth. Guests can visit us the booth and see Pete’s unmatched mixing skills on display starting Saturday May 16th - Monday May 18th.   Pete will even be doing live latte art demonstrations between 10:30AM and 2:30PM every day!  

We will also be featuring an artisan tea bar displaying our finest loose leaf and bagged teas. We will have everything from flavored teas to green to exotic and beyond! The artisan tea bar will also be sampling both iced and hot tea options so whether you're new to tea or a conditioned expert you can find your perfect cup at our booth!

With all of these amazing coffees and teas, it can be a little overwhelming to decide on a favorite. We’ve thought of that, and we’re proud to announce we will be launching a new online platform for guests to interact with via iPads.  We don’t want to give too much away, but the code name is “Coffee Compass” and we’re very excited about showcasing it as an awesome interactive booth experience. 

And of course there will be handshakes and smiling faces throughout our booth to help your sore feet as you venture through the many halls and booths of McCormick Place (and caffeine, if you haven’t caught on.  Lots of it). 

So swing by booth 1125, try out our new Coffee Compass, and be sure to get a hot cup of coffee or smooth glass of tea from our knowledgable team of beverage enthusiasts. And if you can’t make the trip to Chicago yourself,  follow our adventures on Twitter and on Facebook for some great behind the scenes shots. 

See everyone at McCormick!
