coffee cup

With so many beaches to stroll upon while pondering life’s great questions, it should come as no surprise that the Oregon Coast is home to a huge number of coffee shops.

And this Saturday, Nov. 2, the Newport 60+ Activity Center will offer an introduction to local roasters at its inaugural Coffee Corral Challenge.

A number of local roasters, including Catalina’s Coffee and Elk City Coffee, will have their coffee available to taste. Judges from the community will be on hand to rate the different local, fresh-roasted coffees, with criteria including aroma, body, flavor, acidity level, natural sweetness and smooth finish. Guests will be able to have their say in the People’s Choice award.

The various coffees, both light and dark roasts, will be available to buy by the cup or by the bag. Danielle Knudsen of Dark Moon Doughnuts will also be here to sell her goodies.

The event will run from 10 am to 1 pm at 20 SE 2nd Street.

For more information, call 541-265-9617.
