Caffeine Crawl comes to Oklahoma City

Oklahoma City will take part in the first Caffeine Crawl south of Missouri from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Feb. 16. The Caffeine Crawl will begin for ticket holders at two locations, Coffee Slingers Roasters and Elemental Coffee Roasters, the two Co-Roaster level sponsors. Each of the six participating shops begin with an educational presentation and samples. Attendees receive a goody bag, a program, a ticket to all six of the participating shops and a drink or chocolate sample at each.

As consumers, we visit specialty shops like the ones in the Crawl, but we don't get the opportunity to interact with baristas, roasters and chocolatiers producing our favorite treats. This event breaks down that barrier, and gives the coffee and chocolate enthusiast the time to engage and learn about the processes used to create these artisan and specialty products.

The four other shops participating in the Crawl include Cafe Evoke (Edmond), Cuppies and Joe, Syrup Breakfast Boutique (Norman) and T, an urban teahouse.

Those who miss the Caffeine Crawl can join everyone for festivities at Cafe Evoke at 4:30 p.m. That portion of the event will feature a raffle of food and beverage prizes and a special appearance from the award-winning Askinosie Chocolate. Proceeds from the raffle will go to charity.

Cost is $30, and can be purchased online at
