Alumnae start coffee-roasting business; Stop by Art’s Spot Wednesday for taste

Two alumnae of Alfred University – Kaitlyn Bentley Whalen ’12 and Kristen Kovatch Bentley ’10 – will be offering a coffee-tasting from 7:30 a/m. to 1:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 5, at Art’s Spot, located on the third floor of the Powell Campus Center on the Alfred University campus.

            Whalen purchased the Dalahast Roasting Company, based in Jamestown, NY, in the fall of 2016 and is co-operating it with Bentley. They say Dalahast’s motto is “Great coffee makes better people. To support that mission, each small batch is profile-roasted… We believe the best things are still made slowly by hand. All beans are 100 percent Fair Trade certified.”
