Caffeine & Carburetors Events

Caffeine & Carburetors is the premier event series for automotive enthusiasts, collectors and burgeoning fans. Hosted by Zumbach’s Gourmet Coffee in New Canaan, CT, C&C events draw an extensive variety of cars across every category, and have earned a reputation as the place to see some of the most unique, rare and ‘cool’ cars in the world. 

What began as a passion project among friends, has evolved into highly anticipated seasonal events that are supported by an evergreen and growing community. C&C events take place on Sundays, from about 8 am-11:30 am. There is no jury and events are free for all.
