Our new Work In Progress Series debuts with our Fruit Bombs and Fermentation Tour!
Our Fruit Bombs & Fermenation Tour wrapped up last night in Durham with Samuel Penkacik's name drawn from all raffle entrants as the winner of the "Fruit Bombs & Fermentation" custom-edition La Marzocco GS/3. Congrats, Sam! And, huge thanks to La Marzocco for cosponsoring the tour and donating the GS/3!
 
Our "Work in Progress" series kicked off Monday, September 17, at our Boston Training Center with the inaugural tour, titled "Fruit Bombs & Fermentation." The twice-yearly Work in Progress series will be a showcase for ongoing projects and collaborations by our incredible staff – with diverse talents and interests – and our peers in the coffee industry.
 
"Fruit Bombs & Fermentation" focused on Coffee Buyer Tim Hill's experimentation with coffee processing in Ethiopia and New York Coffee Trainer and 2012 United States Barista Champion Katie Carguilo's fermentation-inspired, USBC-winning presentation from 2012. Attendees tasted exotic and experimental Ethiopian coffees along with Katie's awarding-winning signature beverage.
 
Thanks to everyone who attended each stop on the tour!
 
Sincerely,
Nathan
