My friend David Latourell just came back from a week in Scandinavia and he brought back some treats for us. David’s friends with just about all the top coffee people in Copenhagen, which just might be the top coffee city in the world. So these roasters, taster’s champions and World Barista Champions sent him back to New York City arms laden with all kinds of beautiful beans.
The New York Coffee Society will be tasting these coffees (including 3 espressos!) on Saturday, June 6, at 2 pm in Soho. The location is Intelligentsia Coffee’s cool little shiny white coffee laboratory on Broadway just south of Houston.
The address is
594 Broadway, Suite 909A
Just take the elevators on the right side of the lobby on up to the 9th floor and follow the smell of coffee!
This event is open to amateurs and professionals alike; there is no charge, and as always it’s a non-commercial event (no selling stuff or advertising allowed!). We’ll be tasting two different roasts for the same natural-process Ethiopian coffee (from Bagersh), in addition to pulling shots on our GB-5/Robur-E set-up.
RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to come. We’re going to cap it at around 20 people. As always, there’s a high likelihood of tacos and/or beers happening afterwards for those who want to take the edge off the caffeine buzz.
Hope to see you there!
