Coffee Connoisseur

Coffee Connoisseur is specifically designed for those who want to learn about the origins, science and history found in every cup of coffee. Whether your interest is in the different growing regions, coffee nuances, roasting process or you just want to brew a better cup at home. Scott Conary of Carrboro Coffee Roasters is excited to discuss their program of Farmer Direct Relationships that give them control of everything from seed to cup, and most importantly share stories from over 20 years in the industry, over what is sure to be a sensational delight for all.

Events at the Inn are geared toward creating memorable experiences for our guests, community and cherished downtown partners. We are always looking to offer unique events by identifying individualized passions of the community. 

We have partnered with our trusted and beloved caterers to bring regular and superb dining experiences that have been crafted directly from and inspired by former Colonial Inn menus and, of course, The Colonial Inn Cookbook. Menus will be announced below one month ahead of time and meld all of your favorite staples with unique twists and ever changing flavors to keep it deliciously perfect and wildly fun. So get ready for the best brisket, chicken, biscuits and gravy, corn-bread, sweet pecan pie and so much more as we reopen The Colonial Inn.
