Coffee Birmingham scheme raises profile of city’s independents

BIRMINGHAM coffee lovers are being asked to help raise the profile of the city’s burgeoning independent coffee house scene.

Coffee Birmingham is a new movement which will culminate in a city centre-wide event in September and on July 4 a Declaration of Independents will be launched giving enthusiasts the chance to have their say on issues such as quality, skills and business opportunities for small coffee houses. The scheme’s founder Tim Wilson said: “From July 4, we want fans to get involved and fly the flag for independents.”

Call for Volunteers – Coffee Birmingham Launch, 4th July 2012

Passionate for independents, coffee, quality produce and being involved in fabulous events?

On the 4th July, Coffee Birmingham is being launched along with its Declaration of Independents at venues across the city centre.Coffee Birmingham is a movement raising the profile of Birmingham’s independent coffee houses and indie culture in general, culminating in the inaugural Coffee Birmingham event in Birmingham City Centre on Saturday 29th September 2012.

Coffee Birmingham aims to distinguish and unite Birmingham’s indie scene, putting them in the public eye to showcase their excellence and quality, and bring people together from all backgrounds and neighbourhoods – including those who ordinarily haven’t had the chance to enjoy Birmingham’s independent scene.

Volunteers get the opportunity to co-ordinate the launch of the Declaration at a designated coffee shop, liaise with the public and Coffee Shop baristas and build momentum for this exciting campaign. This is a great opportunity to be involved in a fun and hands-on launch, helping to develop event management skills and customer service skills, and act as a public face for Coffee Birmingham in some of the UK’s finest independent coffee shops for a day.

Some volunteers will be invited to be part of the event management team for Coffee Birmingham.

Volunteers are asked to be on hand all day from morning take away until close time on Wednesday 4th July 2012.

This is a fantastic opportunity. Please email tim@coffeebirmingham.co.uk with a few lines on what relevant experience you have, what you want to gain from the opportunity, and your availability for the 4th.
