You've probably been hearing a lot about Columbus' coffee culture. New coffeehouses and roasters are popping up just as fast as the microbreweries are, all over the city. If you're new to the city's coffee scene, check out this great post Columbus Food Adventures ' Bethia Woolf wrote for us a few months ago.

North Market Coffee Roast, March 31, 2012

The North Market will be the epicenter of the Columbus coffee scene this Saturday, March 31, when it's hosting the North Market Coffee Roast ! If you come, you'll have a chance to sample java from 12 local coffee roasters, including Impero, Cafe Brioso, Backroom Coffee Roasters, Thunderkiss Coffee, and the Market's very own A Touch of Earth. You can also sample coffee's perfect foil - dairy - from Snowville Creamery and Hartzler Dairy. There'll be live music, coffee demos in the Dispatch Kitchen, a coffee tasting primer and much more. If you're a home-roaster, you can even enter a contest to win great prizes!

Admission to the North Market is always free. Admission to the coffee tasting is $5 and comes with a souvenir coffee mug (while supplies last.) Programs and entertainment are scheduled from 9 a.m. - 2 p.m.

So if you need a pick-me-up, or just love a great cup of joe, head to the North Market this Saturday!
