Porto Rico Coffee Cupping

Peter Longo -- third-generation owner of Porto Rico Importing Co. -- will walk us through a traditional coffee cupping to carefully evaluate aroma, mouthfeel, flavor, and aftertaste. You'll walk away with a greater understanding of your morning cup of joe, including the sometimes elusive background knowledge on coffee growing, processing, and roasting.

Each participant will receive two cupping experiences and a freshly baked pastry. Choose from a 10:30am or 12pm intimate seating! Get your tickets here.

Talk&Taste: Women in Food

In this installment of Talk&Taste: Evenings at Essex Street Market, we'll hear from female food entrepreneurs who have taken their ideas and passions, and turned them into successful careers.

Our panelists include DeDe Lahman, Co-Owner of the beloved Clinton Street Baking Company; Claudia Wu, Co-Founder and Creative Director of Cherry Bombe magazine; and Shalini Singh, Founder and Instructor at Shalini's Kitchen.

Our evening will start with a tasting at 6:30pm of savory bites from Clinton Street Bakery and handpicked cheese samples from Anne Saxelby (owner of Saxelby Cheesemongers at Essex Street Market), followed by a panel discussion from 7-8pm. Reserve your tickets here!
