What are the tasty ties that bind our favorite morning pick-me-up and the delicious drinks we unwind with after the workday? This summer, two Montclair-based, women-owned businesses — Amanti Vino and Java Love Coffee Roasting Co. — are collaborating on two delicious, fun and illuminating classes on the interplay between wine, beer and coffee.
Amanti Java will be taught by Amanti Vino proprietor Sharon Sevrens and staff, along with Java Love co-owner and Head Roaster Kristine-Ellis Petrik (herself a trained sommelier!)
