About the event
Join fellow coffee lovers for an event with Briana Campbell and Jon Phillips, owners of Time & Tide Coffee. Did you know a coffee bean is the seed inside of a coffee cherry? Briana and Jon will share with you the process of the coffee bean from seed to cup. Jon is a former top licensed Q Grader and will also lead you on an experience of tasting various coffees with different flavor profiles.
What is a Q Grader? Q Graders are a bit like a sommelier of the coffee world. The purpose of Q Grading is to score the quality of coffee by using a universal grading system which follows a worldwide unified standard. There are only a few hundred certified Q Graders in the country and a few thousand in the world (about 7,000). Setting these expectations help both buyers and sellers benefit through a shared understanding of quality coffee. In order to be certified the individual must pass many rigorous tests, including a blindfolded cupping test where they need to accurately distinguish what region the coffee bean is from, how the bean was processed, and more!
For the month of June have a taste of Time & Tide Coffee outside of the traditional coffee cup at the following locations:
Specialty Coffee Cocktail @ Blue Barren Distillery: on the Wharf at Lyman-Morse. 2 Wayfarer Drive, Camden
Gelato @ Freya's Ice Cream 7 Main Street, Rockport
Whistling Whale Coffee Bar is happy to hosts these monthly Maine Cup events and promote a positive coffee culture in Maine. Whistling Whale is located across Camden Harbor on the Wharf at Lyman-Morse.
