The specially designed Tasting Flight is the featured highlight of the event. The Tasting Flight is an informal version of a traditional “coffee cupping” which is the practice by which a professional coffee taster attempts to measure aspects of the coffee’s aroma and taste, specifically the body, flavor, acidity, sweetness, and aftertaste much like sommeliers evaluate wines.
Choose from 80+ coffees locally roasted and artfully brewed by those shown below. Click on a roaster to see more info on them or click on the buttons below to find the full tasting menu or see the full list of roasters. Come taste your way around the globe.
