Roast Your Own 49th Parallel Beans To Support Eastside Boxing

Dig good coffee? Want to roast your own? You can this Thursday night (December 5th) at the Main St. location of 49th Parallel. They’re offering a special tasting and roasting event to raise funds for the reconstruction of the Eastside Boxing Club. For just $20, attendees get to taste through 49th’s two new limited-edition Holiday Celebration coffees (and munch on the four new festive Lucky’s doughnuts) all while getting coffee sourcing intel from the company’s green coffee buyer, Laura Perry, and learning about roasting from Saša Stojanovic, a member of 49th’s team. At the end of the hour-long session, you will go home with a 100g package of your coffee, not to mention bragging rights and the happy knowledge that you just helped out some local kids that just got the carpet pulled burned from under them.

There are limited slots available for roasting, but further tickets for just the tasting and educational component are available for $5 each. Two sessions are being offered: 6pm – 7pm, and 7pm – 8pm. Tickets are available via EventBrite here. Don’t snooze on this or you’ll miss it!

Thurs, Dec. 5 | 6pm–7pm, and 7pm–8pm | 49th Parallel Café | 2902 Main St. @ East 13th Ave
