The Crown: Royal Coffee Lab & Tasting Room: Development Stage

The Crown: Royal Coffee Lab & Tasting Room: Development Stage


Green Coffee Importer Royal Coffee, Inc. will host an event for coffee professionals and enthusiasts at their Oakland, California lab and tasting room from September 26-28, 2024.
Oakland, California – June 2024

“Development Stage,” an inaugural event featuring coffee-related conversations and tastings, has been announced for Friday-Saturday the 27th and 28th of September at The Crown: Royal Coffee Lab & Tasting Room in Oakland, California.
Featured tastings and coffee pairings include collaborations with local chocolate makers, chefs, perfume chemists, winemakers, and fermentations specialists. Presentations and panel discussions cover Bay Area coffee roasters-farmer connections, the history of coffee in the Bay, supply chain equity, and creative roaster-retailer business models. Drawing on talent from local roasters and collaborators, plus The Crown’s leadership team, Development Stage attendees can expect an engaging and immersive coffee community event.
Participants include Katie Carguilo of Counter Culture Coffee (and a board member of World Coffee Research), Jen Apodaca of Mother Tongue Coffee, Devorah Freudiger of Equator Coffees, Fernando Diaz of Proyecto Diaz, Emily Fernwood of Osa Major Wines, Lakenda Wallace of Modern Peasant Natural Perfumes, Elizabeth Vecchiarelli of Preserved Goods, Fellow Products, and many more yet to be announced.
The name "Development Stage" implies a platform for growth and innovation, and the phrase is a nod to the final moments of roasting coffee, a term used to denote the craft and skill of the roaster.

The event takes place at The Crown: Royal Coffee Lab & Tasting Room at 2523 Broadway in Oakland, CA, a premier coffee education venue in the midst of Oakland’s vibrant uptown culinary and arts scene.
Tickets are on sale now, two-day passes are $175. A portion of the proceeds will be used to pay artists and performers at a free preview event the evening prior, details forthcoming soon.
