There’s a buzz at the Barlow, and it’s not just from the press. Taylor Maid Farms Organic Coffee, one of the largest boutique roasters in the North Bay, is opening its flagship coffee bar at the new commercial complex Saturday, Aug. 24.
The roaster began in Sebastopol in 1993, when organic coffee was almost unheard of in a world where Starbucks was often the only roaster that could tell the origin of its beans. Now, it’s snobbishly hip to ask “where are your beans from?” Taylor Maid call tell you that as well as the climate, method and roasting style of their beans. And they’ll grind and brew cups to order.
The coffee bar and roaster hosts a celebration August 24, 2-5pm with munchables from Undercover Baking Agency, Cookle Take-A-Bite, East West Café and brews from Lagunitas and Revive Kombucha. There will be games, raffle prizes and a DJ spinning your favorite tunes from the 90s (here’s an early request for some Limp Bizkit, Mr. DJ). Nineties attire is encouraged. Pshh, yeah, whatever.
Taylor Maid Farms Coffee Bar & Roastery is located at 6790 McKinley Avenue, Suite 170. 707.824.9110.
