Blue Jazz Tasting Room Event: "Jazzy Christmas" Coffee Cocktails by Mac, Charcuterie Boards by Stumpy's Smoked Cheese (December 17)
For this months "Jazzy Christmas" Tasting Lab event, we are again continuing the theme of showcasing local partner businesses while enjoying community and exploring the world through wonderful flavors. This month you have the opportunity to enjoy some adult beverages carefully crafted by local mixologist Russell McAbee using our Summertime Cold Pour Blend as well as a couple of his other customer favorite signature cocktails. Additionally, he has created for us the Captain Hook’s Buttered rum Latte to warm your toes on what will more than likely be a chilly fall evening. See the full offering menu below for all the options and ingredient list!
Topeka's own Stumpy's Smoked Cheese will be in the house keeping our appetites at bay with charcuterie boards of their favorite meats, cheeses and snacks, including a new collaboration with us, Whirlybird Espresso Rub encrusted Havarti! You can always visit them to stock up at their new retail location on North Topeka Ave.
We will serve an assortment of complementary brewed coffee, and our espresso bar will be open for business. Show us proof of posting a 12/17 dated blue instrument #getjazzed photo (from our photo booth) on social media and get half off of your non-alcoholic coffee bar purchases for the night. The cocktails and charcuterie boards will be available for purchase on site.
Admission is $1.00 per person, payable here online only in advance, which we will donate this month to Trash Mountain Project, one of our favorite charitable partners that we regularly support through our "A meal for every bag" program. (If you plan to bring guests, just add that many of this item to your cart and checkout. For example, a party of 4 would be a $4.00 donation, paid right here online.)
So far, all of our events have sold out because our tasting room capacity is limited. We highly recommend reserving your spot once you know you can attend. This also means if you reserve a spot, please show up so a seat isn't wasted! We wish to give our partner businesses the most support possible for the evening.

Drink Coffee. Feed Hungry Kids.
When you buy a bag of Blue Jazz Coffee from any of our available outlets, you are also paying for a meal for a child in need. For every bag of coffee that leaves our warehouse we purchase a meal for one of our kids through a close partnership with Trash Mountain Project. To date, we have been able to provide over 126,636 meals through the program.
We love that you guys allow us to make this type of commitment on your behalf. If you're not with us yet, come along for a great ride. We firmly believe that it's good to be a part of things much bigger than ourselves. Problems that are seemingly unsolvable can be solved if enough of us do a small part in the bigger story.
