What You’ll Do

There are 300 to 400 aromatic compounds found in wine, but even the finest vintages have nothing on coffee. The flavorful brew contains more than 800 compounds that can dance across the palate, and you’ll encounter a number of them during a tasting experience led by roaster Suyog Mody.

  • Coffee Tasting 101
    Suyog introduces the basic principles of coffee tasting—called “cupping”—as well as the terms roasters use to describe the flavors and scents of different brews.

  • Taste Four Single Origin Coffees
    Sample four of Driftaway’s coffees, and learn how the region in which beans are grown and the way they are roasted can impact the taste.

  • Bring Home the Beans
    Choose your favorite of the coffees sampled, then tote home a 7-oz. bag of whole beans.

Suyog Mody Suyog Mody

Suyog Mody started as a coffee fan. But after a while, merely sipping a mug of the stuff wasn’t enough, and so the process of learning to roast began—first at home, then as a founder of Driftaway Coffee. Suyog and co-founder Anu not only roast the beans themselves, but involve themselves in every step of the process, from sourcing to packaging. They also spread their love of coffee through Driftaway’s lively blog, Brewniversity.
