Now that you have the perfect fall recipe… it’s time to consider hosting your first Together Coffee Trunk Show. 

How to Host a #TogetherCoffee Trunk Show

Did you know you can host a Sseko Trunk Show just around Together Coffee? Of course, if you wanted to do both coffee and fashion we totally encourage it, especially with our NEW HOLIDAY LINE releasing this month. But if you just aren’t into clothes as much as you’re into coffee, this is a great way to get involved with Sseko, share our story, and earn credit towards the purchase of Sseko items. 

While you can just have friends over to try a cup and see if they are interested in buying some for themselves, why not have a whole experience waiting for them? Here are a few ways to liven up your #TogetherCoffee Trunk Show.

Mug Exchange

Who doesn’t love a great new coffee mug? Especially in fall. A cute catchy phrase or dazzling design just makes the coffee taste better, don’t you think?

Ask your friends and family to come to the Trunk Show with a gift-wrapped new mug. Then do a white-elephant-style exchange where packages are opened one at a time and the next person has an opportunity to steal. 

Everyone walks away with a fun trinket and it gets the party off to a lively start. 

Sippin’ Selfie 

Once everyone has their new gift, it’s time for “Mug Shots.” Everyone’s Instagram needs at least one solid fall pic of you holding a coffee cup. Like this:

Make sure when your guests share they use #SsekoTrunkShow and #TogetherCoffee on their post! These ladies really nailed the coffee insta post. 

Three Ways to Brew

We bet you know your way around a few brew techniques, but not everyone does.

Make sure you hold a live tutorial on how you craft your most delicious cups. Demonstrate how you grind your beans and show off your favorite kitchen gadgets. This will help your guests go from the Starbucks drive-thru to becoming amateur baristas themselves. Show them how to create a cup using: 

  • A Pour-Over Coffee Dripper
  • A Classic Coffee Machine 
  • A French Press

Then follow up your demonstration with a taste test. That way everyone can figure out which roast they like best and how they prefer it prepared. Check out our blog here for more ideas on how you can brew Together Coffee. 

Pick Your Flavor

After the taste test, let your guests brew their own cup using their favorite combination of techniques. Use the above PSL recipe or any creamers and concoctions you love to let your friends add their favorite mix-ins and toppings while you chat and enjoy your time together. 

Bonus:

Showcase some other Sseko swag while your friends sip! Even if you don’t think you’re a fashion person, your guests might be! Have iPads out with the Sseko catalog available or wear your favorite Sseko gear during the Trunk Show to give everyone a taste for what else they can get when they choose to shop fair-trade. Show them the great gift-giving options and fall fashion for the end of the year. You’ll earn faster and your friends will get to have a fun, caffeine-fueled shopping spree!
