The art of coffee roasting, and tasting, will be demonstrated at the March 21 meeting of the Hayward Rotary Club. Be prepared to sample every kind of coffee you can imagine dispensed from a sophisticated 21st century machine that can dispense a cup of your favorite blend every 23 seconds.


Rotarians will hear a presentation from Fantastica Coffee owner Omar Shareef and how his Hayward business serves businesses with sophisticated "bean-to-cup" brewing machines and its own brands of gourmet coffees from beans imported from South and Central America, Africa ,and Asia. Omar clearly loves what he does, and his new business offers an extraordinary array of single origin, blended, decaf, organic, and specialty coffees that are freshly roasted and packed.
