The art of roasting will be demonstrated as well as a taste-testing of several distinct coffees and a presentation on the history of the vessel.

This event will present an opportunity to enhance a common occurrence and raise it to an uncommon level of sensory experience. $5 for Piedmont Craftsmen Members, $7 non-members.
