Mirra In-Store Coffee Tasting

Location: 202 Allen St, Hudson NY 12534
Date & Time: Saturday, June 22, 2024 / 10am - 12pm

Nordic-Style roasting perfected.

Will Warren of Mirra coffee, located in Rhinebeck NY will be joining us at our coffee bar for a very unique in-store tasting of small-batch Nordic-Style coffee, where he will demonstrate how to brew a cup and guide us through a tasting.

Nordic-Style is the lightest roasting style, which develops the coffee just enough to highlight the unique and nuanced flavors present in each batch, and allows for the purest expression of the beans' inherent flavor.

We are looking forward to hosting Will, and hope you will join us, taste some Nordic-Style coffee and perhaps learn how to brew a cup.
