Coffee Tasting at Sweet Maria's - Nov. 16th

Coffee Tasting at Sweet Maria's - Nov. 16th
Nov. 1, 2018

Sign up for our tasting event on Friday, Nov. 16th and taste a selection of Sweet Maria's coffees. Julio, our lead roaster will be selecting, roasting and brewing some of our current offerings. Please note that this will be a tasting and not a cupping since cupping this many coffees with a large group can get a little messy. Also, tasting coffee drip brewed compared to coffee from a cupping bowl can give you flavors a bit closer to what you might get at home. Sweet Maria's staff will be on hand for questions or random coffee conversations.

This is a free event but you must sign up to attend. Space is limited.

Email [email protected] to sign up.
