Mon, 24 Apr 2017, 10:00 AM – Tue, 25 Apr 2017, 4:30 PM PDT
Want to learn why Swiss Water® Decaf tastes so great, and the art and science of preserving the taste characteristics of the bean? Swiss Water® Decaf is hosting tours at our global production facility - we’ll give you the full plant tour, followed by a cupping session comparing the same coffee before and after decaffeination. Plus some bonus insights on decaf roasting!
Admission is free to people also attending #CoffeeExpo2017. Several time slots are available on both days, so sign up for the one that best suits your schedule.
Vancouver is a gorgeous city with a vibrant coffee and food scene – worth the trip!
