Recap Riverside Coffee Culture Walk
Such a fantastic time was had on the Riverside Coffee Culture Walk on July 7th! We had an amazing and engaged group of coffee enthusiasts. Thanks to all the Baristas from Merchants of Green Coffee, Dark Horse, Tokyo Smoke Riverside, and Boxcar Social! Coffee lovers got full on demos, pour-overs, talks and tastes of Riverside’s many unique coffee spots.
Special thanks to walk leader Manu for sharing his deep coffee knowledge and Megan Sheppard from Team Sheppard RE/MAX Hallmark for their support of the 2018 Riverside Walks series.
