The Coffee Industry – From Seed to Cup

by Lynn Moyers on March 10, 2016

Join us for Corporate Connections at Portland Roasting Coffee and learn about the coffee industry from the inside.

Education and tour
We begin the event with a tour and learn answers to these questions and more: How can we recognize the difference between Columbian and Sumatran? What does a coffee bean look like – or taste like? Where does coffee flavor come from? How does the bean travel from a different continent to our area, and how does it end up in our cup? Can we really purchase “responsibly”? What are the newest industry developments, what will we see in the future, and what are the major challenges? How does the coffee travel through a roasting facility and end up in a bag? Long-time JASO supporters Portland Roasting Coffee throw their doors wide open for you, our members. Book quickly.

Networking Party
After the class, all welcome for our networking party also on-site – special coffee cocktails, plenty of food, beer, and wine. Bring your business cards, invite your friends and network while discovering Portland’s thriving coffee industry. Prizes, plus special discounts on all merchandise and coffee.
