This week: It’s Defective!
You’ve probably heard about sensory defects in things like beer and wine. Coffee can suffer from a few of these as well. Let’s taste the difference between a good coffee and one with a problem! It might taste a little gross, but it’s a great learning opportunity. We’ll also discuss the ways that producers and roasters help to prevent these types of defects from making it into your cup.
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!
If you choose, you may add a donation to Grounds for Health to your registration for this event.
About Grounds for Health
Since 1996, Grounds for Health has worked in Latin America and Africa to address one of the most significant disparities in women’s health globally. Cervical cancer is a nearly 100% treatable disease, and yet in the next 15 years it is expected to kill six million women – 90% of whom will live in developing countries. We specialize in working in communities that represent the base of global supply chains such as coffee, tea, cut flowers and cocoa. We are a mission-driven, international non-profit organization, born out of and with enduring ties to the coffee industry, and focused on increasing coverage of cervical cancer prevention services.

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.
