October News

It's starting to feel like fall here at Carrboro Coffee! We've got an event-heavy month in store along with some new collaborations and coffees. And don't forget to try our NITRObrew now on tap at Open Eye Cafe!

Carrboro Coffee Collaborates

The No Quarter Coffee Stout is back! Our friends at Steel Sting Brewery brew this every year with our cold pressed Guatemalen La Providencia coffee. It's an 8.0% coffee and oatmeal stout that features an intense coffee aroma and flavor, with a finish of semi-sweet cocoa. This batch has an additional infusion of our Ethiopia ARDI for floral and berry notes.

Don't miss its return to the Tap Room for the colder months, and keep an eye out for bottles! 

Featured Client

This month's featured clients are our friends at the Venable Restaurant Group - Venable, CrossTies Barbecue and B-Side Lounge, all located right near Carr Mill, and all proudly serving Carrboro Coffee! Whether you're checking out the elevated comfort food at Venable, barbecue at CrossTies, or the shared plates and wine on tap at B-Side Lounge - you'll find something for everyone. 

Take a Workshop With Our Certified Trainers

Craft Coffee Brewing • Saturday, October 7, 11 AM


Bring your own brewing device or use a provided brewer. Either way, we'll embrace the ritual & craft of home coffee brewing to get more out of your coffee. From Press Pot to Pour Over, you'll learn how to control your recipe, grind, time, temperature & more.

Milk Steaming & Latte Art • Saturday, October 28, 11 AM


Your local barista may make pouring a beautiful rosetta seem magically effortless, but what does it really take? Join us to learn the science & art behind steaming & pouring sweet, glossy, micro- foamed milk. We’ll demonstrate the difference between various milks & temperatures, study a bit of milk chemistry, then try our hand at steaming, pouring & latte art.
