About The Event
Got Barista goals for your own coffee drinking pleasure? If you’re not booked for cuffing on Sunday, join your new plus-some for cupping with Gracefully Coffee Roaster at Star Bright Farm. This is how you want to spend a winter weekend.
Join Mixolo, with or without a plus-one, for a Sunday afternoon off the grid and out on the farm at Star Bright Farm (a family-owned and run 130-acre organic farm in the rolling hills of White Hall, MD) just minutes from Baltimore and Pennsylvania), for a Valentine’s weekend coffee workshop in their cozy barn.
Gracefully Coffee Roasters is sharing the secrets of the roasting process with an IRL roasting demonstration using an IKAWA digital micro coffee roaster. Warning: kitchen gadget lovers will be smitten. We’ll explore the nuanced flavor, diversity, and terroir of the beloved coffee bean.
Gracefully is a local small-batch specialty coffee roasting company in Windsor Mill, MD. Their roasters and baristas will assist and be there to help you unlock some of the mysteries of small-batch roasting, a relatively new phenomenon in major US cities. Coffee Roaster, Derek, will lead you through a cupping (tasting) of several single origin varieties.
You’ll learn to cup coffee, evaluate it and discover what appeals to your palate. You’ll pick up some new techniques for brewing your perfect cup at home. Maker personalities might be tempted to pick up the craft!
Enjoy herb infused baked goods provided by local baker, Lisa Doyle. Yum!
ABOUT STAR BRIGHT FARM:
Star Bright wants you to enjoy a Saturday out on the farm. It’s not us vs. them with Baltimore City and the surrounding counties.

Their shop features local artisans and makers, including food, personal care and household items incorporating the Farm’s harvest.
From our hosts: “Coffee has a huge global impact. It is the second most traded world commodity behind oil and 75% of higher quality arabica beans grown on farms 2.5 acres or less. Its production effects small farmers, rural communities and diverse ecologies around the world. Our daily use and purchase affect the decisions and livelihoods of those who contribute to coffee production. Buying responsible grown and traded coffee with traceable origins is our leverage to make a positive and higher quality impact on a global community”
Expert instructions and supplies are all included. Enjoy your coffee with fresh-baked treats, also included.
