Now that we have started our factory tour series, let us visit next a local artisan coffee factory in Oakland, Peerless Coffee.
Peerless Coffee and Tea's founder John Vukasin came to the new world with an entrenpeneural spirit and a deep desire to succeed. Coming from the coffee cultures of Europe, he began to experiment with his own coffee once he hit land. That experiment grew into the Peerless Coffee and Tea. By spending 4-6 hours in front of the roasters and at the cupping table, John honed his craft to a near-perfect science. He balanced tradition with a penchant for experimentation, always looking to improve on what he had developed the day before. A constant desire to produce the world's best coffee kept his pursuit strong.
It's a simple yet complex formula. Start with the best coffee beans money can buy, blend the coffees using unique recipes (some are 75 yrs old!), artisan roast in small batches in order to bring out the special characteristics of each bean, package and sell the coffee immediately to ensure the freshest coffee in town. Sounds easy but after 80 + years, we are still trying to improve and develop like John did.
The owner will personally give us a tour of the museum and we will be able to view the factory as well. Coffee will be served during the tour. They have a coffee shop as well where we can leisurely sit down and visit if you wish.
Please come on time. Tour starts at 10 AM. Please sign up only if you are definite to come. Plee ask your plus one to sign up as member and RSVP to the event.
I love coffee!!!
