Lycoming College Warrior Coffee Open House Slated for Sept. 15

Lycoming College’s Warrior Coffee will launch its first 100 percent Dominican coffee from the el Naranjito region — Warrior Gold — at an open house event later this month.

Friday, Sept. 15, 5:00 – 7:00 pm
Alabaster Coffee Roaster & Tea Co.
400 Pine St.
Williamsport, PA 17701

Alabaster Coffee Roaster & Tea Co. will now roast Warrior Coffee, and package the coffee to sell at the Lycoming College campus store, at the local Wegmans supermarket, and for Rusty Rail Brewing Company to use in its Wolf King Warrior Coffee Stout.

In addition to local partners, runner-up on Season 11 of Food Network Star and entrepreneurJay Ducote will sell the beans, roasted by Baton Rouge-based Cafeciteaux Coffee Roasters, under his “JayD’s” label.

All are invited to sample Warrior Gold, as well as Warrior Blue, which launched in 2016. Lycoming College faculty and students who travel to the Dominican Republic will be on hand to discuss the farming methods employed to help the villagers of El Naranjito gain a voice on the global coffee market, as well as how they help usher the coffee through a complicated trading export/import process, water quality and solar initiatives.
