Southwest Chocolate and Coffee Fest

The Southwest Chocolate and Coffee Fest in Albuquerque, New Mexico, will be March 21-22, 2020, at Expo New Mexico. Be still, my heart! Just in case more than 140 vendors of coffee and chocolate were not enough, the Chocolate and Coffee Fest also includes baking contests, classes, Sunday morning yoga, a 5-K run on Saturday, cooking demos, decorating and painting classes, the Kitchen Stage with presentations by coffee and chocolate experts, and live entertainment. And, of course, lots of tasting and sampling!
