The Coffee Buyers’ Cupping Table: Focus on Kenya

June 7, 2019 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Event Navigation

We hope to reserve this table for green coffee buyers. If you’re interested in general tastings, please check out our Thursday Cuppings

Taste newly landed arrivals from Kenya with Royal Coffee Trader Caitlin McCarthy-Garcia.

Kenya is the powerhouse of East African coffee producers. With meticulous fully-washed coffees and a truly astounding ability to bring them to market in such small and diversified lots, there are many reasons Kenya often sits atop a “favorite origins” list for many coffee buyers. It is also true that because of this incredible marketing capacity, many of Kenya’s best lots are sold out long before reaching destination warehouses. With our Coffee Buyers Cupping table this month, we hope to pull back the curtain and provide access to still afloat and not-yet-shipped Kenyan gems to add to your lineup.

Join us for this purchasing-focused cupping, taste phenomenal coffees from this well-regarded origin, and learn more about how they could fit into your position.

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.
