Higher Grounds Coffee Offering Free Tastings and Tours
If you’re a coffee lover you might want to check out Higher Grounds Trading Company in Traverse City. The fair-trade coffee company nestled in the Village at Grand Traverse Commons is known for its commitment to the community and also wants people to see what goes on behind the scenes. That’s why they have free coffee tastings and tours every Friday at 2 p.m.
Director of Higher Grounds Coffee, Jennifer Yeatts is in charge of the tastings and also the tours in the coffee roastery. She usually tries to keep the groups relatively small and asks that people call ahead to plan for the tours.
You can expect to see the coffee process from start to finish including the raw coffee seeds through the steps where they’re packaged and ready to be shipped and sold.
