Klatch Coffee throws open the doors of its new facility today with an Open House & TNT tonight in Southern California
We couldn’t be happier for our friends at Klatch Coffee for the latest in a long line of accomplishments: the opening of their brand-new training center and roastery, located at 8767 Onyx Ave., in Rancho Cucamonga.
The new facility features multiple labs for expanded training classes, quality control, and experimentation in all things coffee. With this new space, the family-owned company will now have an SCAA-certified lab hosting coffee preparations and the Q grader program.
The new roastery triples Klatch’s production capacity with a new Diedrich coffee roaster alongside the original Diedrich roaster used to win Klatch the honor of œRoaster of the Year. While the new roaster features the latest technology Diedrich has to offer, it still allows for their œPeak 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 now 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 (2014 U.S. Brewers Cup Champion), and headlined by two-time U.S. Barista Champion, Heather Perry.
The showroom labs will feature the new Victoria Arduino Black Eagle and one of only 100 La Marzocco Strada EP 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 P.M., with the Inland Empire Thursday Night Throwdown (IE TNT) finale immediately following. Sixty-four competitors will face off in Rancho Cucamonga for the top title in the IE TNT event series.
