Intro to Home Roasting Class
June 14, 2018

UPDATE: July 11 - All the spots for the class are filled but you can watch the live stream on FaceBook Live. We'll post the recording after the class is over too. https://www.facebook.com/SweetMariasCoffee/

Join us on Friday, July 13th 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, in thrift shops and at larger retail stores.

Please email byron@sweetmarias.com to register for this class. (Don't register on Facebook). Space is limited. This is a free event.
