This Week: Light, Medium, and Dark: How Roast Color Changes Flavors

Here is a rare opportunity to experience a single coffee at multiple roast levels and discuss the nuances of flavors that change based on nothing more than the amount of time in the roaster. Usually a dark roast lover? You might be surprised what emerges at lighter levels. Love the light side? Give your palate a chance to understand the allure of the dark side!

Join us for a public tasting, where you can stretch your sensory experience and try new and interesting flavors. While we’ll be focusing mostly on coffee, our weekly tastings are here to help expand your palate and knowledge of flavor. Register here to guarantee your spot, and come on through!

Visiting the Crown

We cannot wait to host you in our Tasting Room, at the Cupping Table or for a Coffee Course.

One of the special things about The Crown is that we are located in the heart of Uptown Oakland – a veritable paradise for coffee lovers & foodies alike. However, parking is limited in the area, and we highly encourage public transportation or ride sharing. Below are some resources to help you plan your visit.
