Join Lycoming College’s Warrior Coffee Project for a celebration of coffee!
Three distinct events on Nov. 16 enable you to discover all there is to know about the brew that is making waves in Williamsport. Look at Warrior Coffee from different perspectives and gain a deeper understanding for and appreciation of all that Warrior Coffee does for farmers and their families in the Dominican Republic, and for Lycoming College students.
The evening begins with a coffee tasting and flavor profile of Warrior Coffee at Alabaster Coffee and Tea Co., led by a team of coffee connoisseurs. Stop in anytime between 5:30-6:30 p.m. Participants will move on to Moon & Raven Public House for an entrée created exclusively for the event: Warrior Coffee-encrusted Faroe Islands salmon. Next, head down the road to Peter Herdic House for a Warrior Coffee Cheesecake with chocolate shortbread crust and chocolate-espresso toffee.
Enjoy a handcrafted cocktail that highlights the distinctive attributes of Warrior Coffee (at an extra charge) while you enjoy original photography and a talk by Herdic House November artist of the month and associate professor of chemistry at Lycoming College, Jeremy Ramsey, Ph.D., who visits the DR annually to perform water quality and coffee testing. Then sit back and relax for the final event of the evening — an auction of two of Ramsey’s framed photos and a 60kg bag of green coffee beans from the DR! The highest bidder will also win the opportunity to work with the experts at Alabaster to roast the green coffee beans into a unique brew. Professional designer Lynn Estomin will help to create a custom bag and label for the new coffee roast — a holiday gift that can’t be topped!
Purchase a ticket to all three events for $55 and receive exclusive samples of Warrior Coffee microlots, or pay-as-you-go and select only the events that fit into your schedule.
