This summer, Almanac Coffee will be moving into a roasting studio in the Folk School and will be collaborating with the Dovetail Cafe, offering a variety of coffee based drinks to the community.

Leading up to the opening, this class will give you a sneak peak at some of Almanac Coffee’s current coffee offerings. Through a group-led exercise, you will explore the flavors and fragrances of multiple and very different, coffees, and will begin to learn how to better communicate and understand what you are experiencing.
