What It Takes To Build The Crown: An Interview with Architect Norman Sanchez

The Crown is an open-source coffee education center, laboratory, event space, and tasting room, celebrating the importance of Oakland to the international coffee community and its history. An incubator of ideas and promoter of experimentation across the entire supply chain, The Crown is inclusive, transparent, and collaborative.

Set to open in September 2017, The Crown will have five key components: Tasting Room, Presentation Space & Cupping Lab, Brewing Lab, Roasting Lab & Event Space.

Crown Jewels will be featured and served within the soon to be opened tasting room coupled with Crown Analyses; roasting and brewing recommendations currently available online. The Crown is located at 2523 Broadway Ave., Oakland, CA 94612.
