We have been invited to hold our next Meet-Up at Counter Culture
Coffee's cupping room near Georgia Tech in downtown Atlanta. It will
be a coffee appreciation day. After an Intro to Cupping, the
homeroasters amongst us will be invited to share our artisan coffees
in an "Open Cupping" session. (Bring 3 oz of your finest home roasted
beans to share, if you'd like.) Afterwards CCC will strut their stuff.
Our host, David LaMont , have also invited us to play with their new
Clover brewer as well as to try our hands at espresso on their La
Marzocco FB80. There will also be demonstrations of latte art.
We will have an assortment of home roasting equipment there, but we
won't be able to do any actual roasting this time because the venue
is a restored historical structure. (Think old wooden buildings.)
This should be a fine afternoon for coffee fans of all kinds.
So, come join us on Saturday January 24th at 2pm at the King Plow
Arts Center, 887 West Marietta St NW, Atlanta, GA 30318. Please check
Google or Yahoo maps for specific directions. "The Food Studio" (next
door) has closed, but there are still excellent on-line maps available.
If you think you might be attending, please let me know either here
or off-list so we can give them a head count. Bring a friend, if you'd like.
Some of you always ask if you can bring snacks or a put luck dish.
The answer this time is definitely "Yes." If you are interested in
roasting some beans for this meeting and are looking for a
suggestion, think African.
I hope to see you there.
