An African Pick-Me-Up

Old City Coffee isn’t just loved by east-dwelling Philadelphians. The shop has a reputation across neighborhoods as one of the top places in the city to get a great cop of coffee.

Now, Old City Coffee’s Jack Treatman will lead a tasting of African brews Saturday afternoon. Treatman will teach attendees the differences between more than five different brews, and will also demonstrate a brewing method using something called a Chemex manual drip brewer—which we think sounds like it’s going to be awesome.

The tasting begins at 3 p.m., at Old City’s Reading Terminal Market spot. RSVP by emailing
