Screening – Discussion – Demonstrations – Coffee Paintings – Tastings – Snacks
Enjoy a screening of the feature documentary, Caffeinated. The film focuses on the social and cultural landscape of coffee, bringing a seed-to-mug approach to what goes into making the perfect cup of coffee. Tamas Christman, founder and CEO of Dragonfly Coffee Roasters (Roast Magazine’s Top Micro Roaster of 2018), will introduce the film via video.
There will be an exhibition of coffee paintings by visiting artist Craig Peterson. Craig combines coffee, watercolor, and pen to create outdoor-inspired artwork. Kids will be able to create their own coffee paintings.
After the film, experts on everything from coffee history and farming, to brewing techniques and waste diversion, will speak and answer questions. There will also be tastings, including one of Cascara, an herbal tea made from the dried skins of the coffee fruit.
