During the month of June, Temple Coffee has treated us lucky coffee-lovers to fun and informative events at different coffee shops around the 916. Temple keeps the ball rolling on June 21 at the Temple S Street cafe in Sacramento, where visitors will learn about the effects coffee has on our health. Myths and rumors will be debunked, like whether light or dark roast has more caffeine and how much coffee can be consumed during pregnancy. Bring your possible misconceptions about that warm nectar of the gods and observe how caffeine is processed by the human body. This intriguing event starts at noon. If tasting fresh new flavors of caffeine is more your cup of coffee, come to the Temple K Street location June 28 to try their brand new Cold Brew Blend. It’s perfect for the warm weather while still getting your energy boost on. On this occasion, instructors will be brewing a flash brew iced coffee on a Clever Dripper as well as a V60 pour over. After learning some tips on making delicious iced coffee, you will then be able to take those lessons and combine them with your favorite brew methods for experimenting at home. And don’t forget to mark your calendars for the Temple annual sidewalk sale on June 29 at the K Street Temple from 11 a.m.–2 p.m. There will be food, past retail items, and cash and card will be accepted.
