Building3 hosts grand opening week

Posted By on Mon, Aug 8, 2016 at 3:59 PM

We recently noted the soft opening of Building3 Coffee Roasters, and as of Monday, it's officially game on with a grand opening week of events planned, including a cupping with a visiting El Salvadoran coffee producer. 

I stopped into the Lincoln Center last week and met owner/roaster Sean Buckles, and took a small tour of his roastery and sharp cafe space. Here's what I saw:
