Event Information (from Cartel Coffee Lab):

Cartel Coffee Lab will be hosting a 3 day coffee series about the whole story behind coffee, from “Seed to Cup”. “Seed to Cup” is for coffee professionals, long-time coffee lovers or those with a new found love and appreciation for coffee. Each day’s session will be roughly 90 minutes in length and will cover different stages of the process from the farm to your cup.

The cost is $70 for all three sessions, including coffee tastings all three days, beer and wine tasting on Monday evening and a bag of coffee. If you can’t make it to all three sessions but want to learn more about a particular part of the coffee producing process, we have a limited number of spaces for 1 day participants at $30 per day.
