This will be a casual get-together of Slow Foodies, fair traders, budding barristas, coffee addicts, and anyone interested in learning more about this enticing beverage. Learn about the differences in taste between beans of the coffee growing regions, how small businesses source their beans and what you can do as a consumer to help support sustainable small farms and fair trade in the coffee industry. Attend a complimentary cupping (tasting) of varietals to see how our local roasters craft their custom blends. Learn how to select the best beans for your palette and take home brewing tips from Verve’s award winning baristas to expand your culinary repertoire. Learn how to integrate the Slow Food ethos of “Good. Clean. Fair.” into your daily cup of Joe.
