Family owned and Southern California based Klatch Coffee will be opening the doors on Thursday, April 2nd to showcase their brand new, state-of-the-art training center and roastery. Their new facility will feature multiple labs for expanded training classes, quality control, and experimentation in all things coffee.
The new roastery triples their production capacity with a new Diedrich coffee roaster along side their original Diedrich roaster used to win Klatch the honor of “Roaster of the Year”. While their new roaster features the latest technology Diedrich has to offer, it still allows for their “Peak of Flavor” roasting style. Klatch has used this approach to earn over fifty 90 + point coffees, including the 97 point Camilina Geisha from Panama which was the #1 coffee of 2014.
Klatch will be an SCAA certified lab hosting certified coffee preparation classes as well as the Q Cuppers program. In addition, Klatch will be able to offer even more private and group training for roasters, baristas and the coffee public. Classes are led by the team of Mike Perry (Roaster of the Year), Todd Goldsworthy (US Brewers Cup Champion) and headlined by two-time US Barista Champion, Heather Perry.
The showroom labs will feature the new Nuova Simoneli Black Eagle and one of only 100 La Marzocco EP Strada espresso machines in the U.S., plus the first production Curtis Seraphim brewer in the world. During the open house, Klatch will be offering their award winning coffees, including the famous geisha coffee Todd Goldsworthy used in this year’s United States Brewers Cup competition. There will be an exciting coffee and beer fusion from Claremont Craft Ales, a food truck, free samples and a raffle of geisha coffee! The open house will be held from 5 -6 PM with the Inland Empire Thursday Night Throwdown (IE TNT) finale immediately following.
IE TNT is a community event building up the Inland Empire coffee community through latte art competitions and Klatch Coffee is hosting their series finale starting at 6 PM on April 2nd . 64 competitors will face off in Rancho Cucamonga to see whose latte art stands out among the crowd.
