CLARKS SUMMIT — Do you know the difference between the aroma and fragrance of coffee?

Those listening in during the Electric City Roasting Company’s Seed to Cup Coffee Talk and Tasting on Saturday, Sept. 26 at Everything Natural did not. That is, until Mary Tellie, owner and founder of the company, cleared things up.

She explained “fragrance” refers to the smell, or scent, of the dry coffee grounds, while the “aroma” is the smell, or scent, of the coffee after it is brewed with water.

Tellie founded the Electric City Roasting Company in 2003 because, in her own words, she “couldn’t find a good cup of coffee.” In addition to selling its coffee wholesale to area businesses, the business offers coffee education for beginners through professionals at its lab in Scranton.
