Monthly Event Hosted by The Roasterie
October 24, 2012 @ 5:30 pm - 7:30 pm
Kansas City’s self-proclaimed Bean Baron has turned his passion for coffee into a one-of-a-kind recipe for success. Danny O’Neill, entrepreneur extraordinaire and the driving force behind one of America’s leading specialty coffee-roasting companies, founded the Roasterie in his Brookside basement in 1993 many years after picking coffee beans on a student trip to Costa Rica. He soon after established a large clientele and as they say … The rest is history!
UCG toured Danny’s first location on Madison Avenue in 1998 and then about ten years later the UCG visited the Roasterie’s newest digs during a surprise November blizzard in 2006. We again visit the most unconventional event space to date in KC, which has recently acquired a vintage life-size airplane for the roof.
Join us in the “Bean Hangar” and be the first to experience the new edgy event space and café, along with a tour of the production facility. We request costume attire in celebration of All Hallow’s Eve, so don’t miss this special event! Join us at this great location to discover a place that truly contributes to the vitality of our urban core!
