Zoka Celebrates New Coffeehouse in Snoqualmie

Seattle, Wash. U.S.A. (Sept. 4, 2007) - Seattle-Based Zoka Coffee Roaster & Tea Company has opened its third coffeehouse in Snoqualmie and will celebrate with a grand opening event September 7- 9, 2007. The event will feature coffee from La Esmeralda, which set a world record at auction in May, when Zoka paid $130 a pound. La Esmeralda will be brewed one cup at a time on the unique Clover brewing machine, and this extraordinary coffee can be enjoyed while you visit with the farmer. Rachel Peterson, from La Esmeralda in Panama, will be on hand to talk about her family's coffee. The grand opening activities also include: + Learning how to taste coffee like a professional during a "coffee cupping" session with Zoka's globetrotting coffee buyer. + Exploring faraway places as you sample coffees from all over the world. + Meeting Zoka's Master Roaster and learn about the "art" in artisan coffee. + Earning your "Coffee 101" diploma by learning how to properly brew coffee at home and how to spot a coffeehouse truly devoted to quality. + Sampling delectable delights from Zoka's own bakery and meet our baker. + Tea tasting with Zoka's Tea Buyer.
