Wake up. Grab coffee. If that’s you, this class is for you. Skip out of work early, and meet up with Tar Heels at alumni co-founded Counter Culture Coffee (Brett Smith ’94 (MBA) and the late Fred Houk Jr. ’73) for an exciting look into the world of coffee. While sampling coffees, you’ll learn about tasting techniques, discuss the differences between coffees and how they’re grown, and have an opportunity to ask questions about your favorite cup of Joe. After the tasting, you’ll tour Counter Culture’s roastery to learn where the magic happens. The class begins promptly at 3 p.m., please arrive at least 15 minutes early.
Swag alert: All participants receive sample bags of six different coffees from the tasting. GAA members also head home with a reusable coffee sleeve.
