Burundi + Rwanda Coffee Tasting

Burundi + Rwanda Coffee Tasting
Sept. 18, 2019

Sign up for our Rwanda + Burundi tasting event and experience a selection of Sweet Maria's coffees from these two underrated coffee origins. Julio, our lead roaster will roast one coffee from each country for you to compare and contrast.

Please note this will be a tasting and not a cupping. Tasting drip brewed coffee compared to coffee from a cupping bowl will give you flavors a bit closer to what you might experience at home. Sweet Maria's staff will be on hand for questions and coffee conversations.

Please email [email protected] to register for this class. Space is limited. This is a free in-person event that will take place at our Oakland location.
