Every Monday night from 6:30 to 7:30, Noella Brew Bar hosts free coffee tastings, featuring whatever’s the latest blend from Counter Culture Coffee. It’s a chance to discover/develop/cultivate your tastes — the world beyond Trader Joe’s French Roast is vast! Plus, Noella promises the tastings are “a great way to meet people in the ‘hood.” (Ready-made conversation topic — how ’bout that coffee, huh?)
This Monday, July 30th, the coffee in question is “Variety: Bourbon,” and Counter Culture explains why this is Big Deal:
Coffee is a fruit, after all, and like any fruit, variety makes a difference. A Granny Smith apple, green and tart, tastes completely different than a sweet, crisp Pink Lady. This is the essential difference of variety. While the wine world has recognized the role of variety for a long time — Cabernet Sauvignon, Pinot Noir, and Merlot are all varieties of grape — we speak far to little about variety in coffee. We’d like to change that. Variety: Bourbon is the first-ever curated variety-specific coffee in the marketplace.
