The Local Roast — 10/27/22

In this week’s issue, food writer Matt Ingersoll participates in a coffee cupping and gets the story on how specialty roasting is on the rise in New Hampshire. Learn about the complex journey it takes locally roasted coffee beans to reach your cup and find out where you can go to get the freshest morning joe around.

Also on the cover Katelyn Sahagian has all the details on New Hampshire Distiller’s Week, culminating with the ninth annual Distiller’s Showcase of Premium Spirits on Nov. 3 (page 26).
