Coffee Culture – Cafe Los Suenos

Saturday, February 3, 2018 at 10:00 am - 12:00 pm


Where does coffee fit into your day? Do you grab yours on the run to work, or grind your own beans before brewing and enjoying a leisurely cup or two? Is drinking coffee a reason to gather with friends and socialize, or spend a quiet moment catching up on some reading? The beverage we love so much is grown in more than fifty countries in Asia, Africa, South and Central America, and the Caribbean, with 67 percent of the world’s coffee coming from the Americas alone (statistics from www.businessinsider.com). However you like your java, Sandy Spring Museum is bringing some of the world’s coffees (and teas) to you in a new series, Coffee Culture Around the World, starting in February 2018. On the first Saturday of each month, we’ll feature a different purveyor who will brew and sell hot beverages and products, and provide brewing tips and background information.

Join us on Saturday, February 3, 2018, 10:00 – Noon when Elizabeth Ryan and Carlos Payes, co-founders of Café Los Sueños will offer freshly brewed coffee from El Salvador, and other products. Café Los Sueños is a coffee roaster with a twofold mission; to provide customers with a direct connection to Central American regions, and to support coffee farming communities by donating a percentage of their profits to fund education projects.

Stay immediately after to visit our resident artists in their studios during the open house, 11:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.
