For Halcyon's residents, office users and surrounding neighbors, Land of a Thousand Hills will serve 100 percent Arabica coffee alongside a 24-tap, pour-it-yourself beverage wall with a variety of beer, cider and hard seltzer. To use the wall, customers link a radio-frequency identification (RFID) card to their payment method, then can enjoy sampling their choice of pours by the ounce.
