A tasting room will allow coffee lovers to taste, evaluate, and compare coffee variants to determine the quality and potential of each product.
A village of roasters will allow micro-roasters to meet customers who can taste roasted coffee, and it will also present recent developments in coffee sourcing, handling, roasting, brewing, and distribution.
