Coffee Tasting Room in Oakland






The Tasting Room is currently open Monday – Sunday,  9:00 AM – 4:00 PM
2523 Broadway, Oakland, CA, 94612


Experience the full spectrum of coffee in our one-of-a-kind Tasting Room. Enjoy highly intentional coffee drinks made by our skilled baristas who are happy to share their deep coffee expertise. Whether you want to discuss a certain coffee’s processing method, inquire about a  varietal, or you just want a recommendation to best suit your palate, they are here to help.


Hybrid Classes

The Crown is proud to offer a variety of hybrid classes! These classes cover a wide range of topics and are pre-recorded, so you can learn when and wherever is most convenient for you. View our full list of offerings here.



We miss discussing all things coffee in person, but we’ve been busy taking the conversation digital via our webinar series! We’ve talked about everything from Green Coffee Logistics to Race and Specialty Coffee. Recordings of previous webinars as well as registration links for upcoming webinars can be found here. 



We get it: there are too many terms and phrases to keep track of when talking about coffee (and we’re always making up new ones). To help keep things straight, we’ve put together a handful of glossaries for you to reference whenever you need to! Check out our Green Coffee Glossary, Brew Glossary, and Roasting Glossary (coming soon).
