The weather is chilly, and the holiday season is in full swing. For the third year in a row, we are hosting our Holiday Blend cupping event, held on December 12, starting at 3pm. This event is our way of celebrating the end of the year. If you would like to submit a holiday blend, please send an email to Ryan Willbur. We look forward to receiving and showcasing coffees from our partners around North America.

Not only do we want to celebrate great coffee, but we also want to support our neighborhood. This year we’ll be collecting donations in support of our local food bank. Ballard Food Bank’s mission is to “Bring food and hope to our neighbors,” and that’s a cause we want to support this holiday season. We kindly ask attendees to bring an item or two to help fulfill the food bank’s wish list.

RSVP to our event on Facebook.
