Love coffee? Then join us for a special event as Mars Cafe co-owner and Grand View University Alumnus Daniel Bosman ‘05 hosts a specialty coffee cupping at Mars Cafe.  

A cupping is a standard set by the Specialty Coffee Association to evaluate coffee by smell and taste. Beyond the cupping, Daniel will be talking about different brewing methods and how you can get the most out of your coffee at home.  Whether you’re a beginner in coffee, or a home barista, this coffee experience is going to be fun and informative for all coffee lovers!
