Los Osos very own SloRoasted Coffee Company had another open house yesterday. Guests were invited to the warehouse on Los Olivos St. to sample three types of coffee which been paired with six different desserts made by Apple Farm. That was followed by a coffee roasting demonstration.
The warehouse is open M-F and you’re invited to stop by any time. They have a small showroom inside the front door and have for sale all of the huge variety of coffees they sell. So if you can’t find your favorite blend at the store, you can always stop by at the warehouse. They can also be contacted at their website at www.sloroasted.com or call 528-7317
They’ll be holding another open house in the early part of December, so if you missed this one there’ll be another in time for Christmas shopping. So if you have out of state or out of country people on your Christmas list and want to send them a little taste of the central coast, SloRoasted is a good place to start for products made here.

Since the beans continue to cook even after they’ve been spilled, a master roaster’s deep knowledge of exactly how the beans are transforming second by second is vital. That and split second timing is the critical difference between a bin of great coffee beans and a very expensive load for the compost bin.
