Coffee Roaster Talk & Tasting

Stop in and learn about, and taste, the history of coffee with roaster Taylor Hale of Night Kitchen Coffee.  We will spend an hour talking about the origins of coffee as well as the history of how it moved around the world and developed into the global economy it is today.  Along the way we will taste some coffees from around the world and discover how the flavor of coffee is a reflection of the lands and soils where it is grown.

Night Kitchen Coffee is a small batch coffee roasting company based in Denton Maryland but with roots in downtown Cambridge.  We focus on small farmed coffees that are bought from as close as the farm as possible.  We firmly believe that the quality of the coffee you taste in your cup is most influenced by the work of the farmer and are committed to making sure we reward and recognize that effort first.
