Paid membership lets you take your coffee testing to the next level.
Paid members will receive coffee each month to test. Each delivery will contain two different bags to compare to one another. Some months we send out the same coffee but roasted with different methods so that you can explore the differences in taste. Other months we will send out two different coffees that we find interesting to compare – for example a washed-process coffee vs a dry-processed coffee from the same origin.
Each month will be a bit different so that you can keep advancing your knowledge and always have some new and exciting coffee to try.
Please pick up your coffee by appointment only or during scheduled pickup times . We are working at a functioning nonprofit organization doing important work, not a coffee shop. 🙂 Please contact us for questions.
