Brewing Basics: New Workshop Dates!
NEW DATES ADDED: June 29 in Asheville and July 20 in Asheville, Atlanta, Boston, Durham, New York, and Philadelphia! This two-hour workshop explores the essentials for brewing great coffee at home.
HaruThis year we worked with Haru and the Yirgacheffe Farmers Cooperative Union to recreate the immaculate coffee we bought last year. Better cherry selection and better processing resulted in another lot exclusively for Counter Culture that hits the hallmarks of a great Yirgacheffe coffee.
Kilenso MokonisaThis coffee from Aklilu Kassa’s washing station in Kilenso Mokonisa in southern Ethiopia showcases what natural sundried processed Ethiopian coffee is all about. Big flavors of blueberry and blackberry are accentuated by a juicy body.
Karatu PeaberryThe Gitwe Farmers cooperative – off the eastern slope of the Aberdare mountain range in Kenya – impressed us with a amazing coffee two years ago. This tiny, few-hundred pound peaberry lot proves that their past great coffee was not just a fluke. Complex, tropical fruit, hibiscus, and citrus notes.
Atu LintangAtu Lintang grew out of a conversation about improving quality at the Jagong mill in Sumatra a few years back. We feel fortunate to have revived this project recently. Look for notes of bell pepper, green grape and spice.
Meet the Buyer Event at Everyman Espresso in NYC
Manhattan's Everyman Espresso will host a special Meet the Coffee Buyer event Sunday, March 22, at 8 p.m., with Counter Culture Coffee's Director of Coffee and co-owner Peter Giuliano. The event, subtitled Building Quality from Seed to Cup, will cover a range of topics including but not limited to discovering and developing coffee quality, stories and photos from origin, and connecting coffee with taste experiences.
Combined with his gift for storytelling, Peter's wealth of knowledge about coffee, its history, and the communities that produce it will certainly make for an entertaining and enlightening evening.
