The third annual Maplewood Coffee Crawl pulled coffee-lovers from Chesterfield to south St. Louis city. It was sponsored by the Maplewood Special Business District and Feast Magazine. They had room for 500, and hit that number days before the event.
Maplewood businesses Cheryl's Herbs, Foundation Grounds, Kakao Chocolate, Stone Spiral Coffee and Currios, Schlafly Bottleworks, Turner Center for the Arts, and Vom Fass took part, featuring a coffee roaster or in the case of Cheryl's Herbs, several teas. Kakao Chocolate had samples of chocolate to pair with coffee.

Community Development Director for Maplewood, Rachelle L'Ecuyer, called the event a walkable tour celebrating caffeine.
"We are thrilled to host some the top regional roasters and at the same time show off our coffee houses and food shops," L'Ecuyer said in an email to Patch. "We are carefully growing this event to continue the success we have seen and hope it is even better next year!"
