Something is Brewing in the Hudson Valley

A Cup of the Valley, sponsored by the Poughkeepsie South and Wappingers Falls Rotary Club and Greenwood Lake Roasters, will take place from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., April 16, at Revel 32, conveniently located in the heart of downtown Poughkeepsie. Attendees can sample a large variety of local coffees and teas, plus coffee and tea-themed desserts, treats and eats. Tea drinkers will be delighted by delicious varieties from local purveyors, tea shops and specialty markets. Event coordinator Susan Bennett says, “We welcome you to immerse yourself in the tasty offerings and bring home your favorites, all from local vendors.”

Several vendors will be providing exhibitions throughout the day on various topics surrounding the coffee-roasting process, brewing techniques, and more. Highlights include an Ethiopian coffee ceremony and an espresso creations presentation. “All proceeds of the day’s food, music and fun will go back into our local, national and international communities,” adds Bennett.

Admission is $17 for adults and $15 for students; a festival booklet with more information and coupons is included. Location: 32 Cannon St., Poughkeepsie, NY. For more information, call 845.206.9590, [email protected] or visit
