Limited Capacity full

Roasting Plant has been described as “the Willy Wonka of the coffee world,” as well as being perhaps the most technologically advanced coffee cafe on the planet. Founded by a former Starbucks executive/industrial engineer, who set out to achieve the ultimate in freshness and choice, our concept has had an overwhelming reception in downtown Detroit. Learn more about our patented Javabot technology, early success and failures, and where the company is now headed. And of course, we will be pouring coffee samples! The presentation will be held on the outdoor patio or in the main lobby if the weather doesn't permit.
