HISTORY: COFFEE CAMP was formed and appeared at BM' 04, and had a great week serving endless pot after pot of hot caffeinated beverages, and it soon became the local blocks morning meeting spot for people just waking up, or others just coming back from a night on the town. The camp next went to The Phoenix Festival in 2005 (Washington, smaller Humanity/Arts camping, 2,000+ people), where it was registered as a Theme Camp, and served a rough estimate (give/take) 25 gallons of coffee. Since then, we have been enlightened and informed of various other caffeine spectrums (tea, hot chocolate, etc.), and more importantily, of having non-dairy flavorings (soy milk, cream substitutes) on hand. The idea of registering as a Theme Camp at BM o6' is tempting, but the problematic paradigm presents itself as such:
1.) There are 3 camp members.
2.) Getting demolished by 10,000 coffee drinkers.
3.) the negative impact it may have on The Center Cafe.
With all these considerations listed, we have chose to be Officially Unofficial as a site, but will keep posted on proposed location as the event nears (The past has always been at about 7:45 and third street back from the Esplanade). We look forward to seeing you at our caffeinated oasis here in about 7 months!
