The Coffee Buyers’ Cupping Table: Understanding Organic Coffees

July 18, 2019 @ 2:30 pm - 3:30 pm

Event Navigation

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

Understanding Organic Certified Coffees

Join us for a cupping and discussion centered around organic farming practices led by Royal Coffee’s Certifications Specialist, Rosi Quinones.

Since the 90’s, interest in Organic coffees has exploded, but there is still a lot of misinformation about what exactly it means to be certified organic. This critical certification goes well beyond simply avoiding synthetic fertilizers and pesticides.  At this cupping event, attendees will taste the best of our organic selections from multiple origins and learn exactly what this voluntary environmental certification means. The discussion will include:

  • The points of the organic certification with which coffee producers need to comply

  • How the organic integrity of the product is ensured throughout the supply chain

  • Why and how a roaster can become certified organic

We hope to see you there!

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. Here are some resources to help you plan your visit.
