Coffee roasters boasted about their specialty brews at the 2014 Roast and Boast on Friday. For the third year, the UAF School of Management partnered with Northrim Bank to host this community event, which featured door prizes, food and plenty of hot beverages. Four coffee roasters showcased their wares at the event: Alaska Coffee Roasting Company, Diving Duck, McCafferty’s Coffee House and North Pole Roasting Company. Additionally, Great Harvest Bread Company, Gulliver’s Books and Take 5 Café and Bakery donated gift certificates and baked goods for door prizes. The grand prize was an auto-start from Auto Trim Design. Congratulations Hollis Hall!
Students in the UAF Principles of Marketing class helped organize and market this event, gaining organizational management, budgeting, team building and event-planning experience.
