Join us to cup preship samples from The Catracha Project, Mayra Orellana-Powell’s community in Santa Elena. Hosted by Laurel Wirth, Coffee Trader and Lead Buyer for the Catracha Project at Royal Coffee.

The relationship between Royal Coffee and Catracha Coffee Company has flourished for many years. Mayra and her husband Lowell have pioneered an incredible community and quality-focused farmer development program. Fueled by her passion for the people, an innovative spirit and multifaceted approach, this project aims to improve the prosperity of the total community and elevate the quality of the beans.

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