Beverage Tastings
5:00pm / Animas Chocolate & Coffee Co.
Learn more about what we're crafting AND sample our incredible chocolate or beverages at our in-cafe tastings!    Join us every other Wednesday at 5:00 pm for a free, educational beverage tasting. These tastings are in-house trainings to educate our staff about our offerings and we love to have the public join us!   Beverage tastings may be coffee or espresso based, or might include alcohol such as spirits or wine; it all depends on what our staff is learning about that week!   Each week will be something different, whether we're tasting the difference between a cappuccino (or as we call it, The Claim Jumper) and a Harlot (otherwise known as a latte), or sampling a new cocktail we're considering for our cocktail & chocolate pairing menu.   No ticket or RSVP is necessary, simply join us in the cafe to sit in, enjoy some chocolate, and learn something new! Plus, don't forget: on the Wednesdays we aren't doing beverage tastings, we'll be doing chocolate tastings! Join us each Wednesday at 5:00 for an in-cafe tasting!

With a new introduction by the author, this edition includes Craig Childs's original journal--written over a winter in Canyonlands National Park and complete with pen-and-ink sketches--from which Stone Desert originated.
