Intro to Home Roasting Class
Apr. 18, 2019

[Update 4/25 - Due to some scheduling issues, we won't be able to live stream or record this class.]

Join us on Friday, April 26th at 1pm for our next fun and informal coffee roasting class. We'll show you how easy it is to roast at home with just a few household items and a hot air popcorn popper. These inexpensive, little appliances are the best machines for beginners because they are fun to use and allow you to experience the roast process with all of all your senses. Also, they are easy to find online (like on our website), in thrift shops and at larger retail stores.

Please email [email protected] to register for this class. Space is limited. This is a free event.

Friday, April 26th
1pm - 1:45pm
Sweet Maria's Coffee Warehouse
2823 Adeline St. Oakland, CA 94608
