Coffee Tasting At Sweet Maria's - Feb. 28th

Coffee Tasting At Sweet Maria's - Feb. 28th
Feb. 15, 2019

Ever wonder how much of an influence a coffee roaster has on the flavor of the coffee that comes out of it? On Thurs. 2/28 we will brew different batches of one coffee that was roasted to one roast level but with different machines. Sign up, show up and taste the difference.

Please note that this will be a tasting and not a cupping since cupping 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.

Thurs. Feb. 28th
1-2pm
Sweet Maria's warehouse
2823 Adeline St, Oakland, CA 94608
