Counter Culture Coffee Pop Up Cafe at SCAA
We're excited to announce that Counter Culture Coffee will operate a Pop Up Café from Friday, April 28, through Sunday, May 1, in the Level 2 Concourse of the George R. Brown Convention Center during the 2011 Specialty Coffee Association of America (SCAA) Expo in Houston. The pop up café will offer a seasonal selection of handcrafted coffees and espresso drinks – all of which will be free for Expo attendees – served in ceramic drink ware.
Our farm-to-table cafe space will also host daily coffee cuppings with producer partners such as Aida Batlle of Finca Mauritania and Marysabel Caballero of Finca El Puente; feature new single-origin espresso offerings each day; and hold a daily Taza Chocolate Happy Hour with Taza’s Counter Culture Coffee Chocolate Mexicano discs and mochas crafted with Taza’s stone-ground organic chocolate.
Attendees and others interested may find our 2011 SCAA Pop Up Café schedule on our Facebook page.
On a related note, Zach Neuman of Café Helios in Raleigh took top honors at the inaugural Southeast Regional Brewers Cup in Atlanta in February with Counter Culture Coffee and our Bonmac Pro Series Dripper. Zach will compete in the 2011 USBC Brewers Cup this weekend in Houston with his trusty Pro Drip Cone and a new washed Ethiopian offering called Konga that we'll roll out later this week.
