Merlo Coffee announced Coffee Appreciation Classes to August 2013:

[wpg width=”200″ height=”300″ align=”right”]Flash Rosenberg was on to something when he said “humans get a lot done, not because we’re smart, but because we have thumbs so we can make coffee”. The dons at Merlo Coffee concur, and have announced the calendar for Coffee Appreciation Classes through to August 2013. Each hour-long Coffee Appreciation Breakfast or Brunch includes a light continental breakfast or brunch, a tour of the roasting facility, a short history of coffee, a sample of two origin beans, and a merlo coffee blend, expert advice on making the best coffee at home and a sample bag. The sessions cost $25 per person. For groups of 5-12 people, private bookings can be made at any time in any Torrefazione (Merlo’s  Italian roasting factories) by calling the store directly.
