Swiss Water Process


Ever wonder how our Brazilian decaf coffee came to be so delightful, and in a 100% chemical-free process? Join us for an evening of coffee that won't keep you up all night, featuring complimentary decaf affogatos with Ruby Jewel ice cream, iced coffee, and side-by-side tastings of decaffeinated vs. regular coffee. We've invited the innovative team from Swiss Water Process for a deliciously informative evening all about what sometimes seems like a naughty word in the world of specialty coffee: DECAF.

Tastings will begin at 5 PM, with the talk to start at 5:30 PM
