In February we held the first of a series of coffee tastings we call Coffee Nova.  We began with v.1 which was a straight-forward cupping of four distinct coffees, contrasting them in two flights.  Those who attended had such a great time they asking when we would hold v.2.  I'm happy to say that the wait is over.
On Saturday, April 21 we will host Coffee Nova v.2 at our roaster location - Velocity Bike & Bean in Florence, KY.  Mark your calendars and reserve your spots soon!

Here are the details.

Event Description
In Coffee Nova v.2 we will use various brewing methods as a way of discovering the impact each method has on what we taste in the cup.  We will do two flights, tasting a single coffee in each as brewed the following ways:
  • Clever Coffee Dripped
  • Chemex
  • Aeropress
  • Espresso

Then we'll taste the same coffee as made in a traditional coffee pot.  (We may even have a surprise brewing method or two as a special treat, who knows!)  The fun will be discovering how each brewing method brings out something different in the coffee.  We're even going to include a tasting of the Rwanda Cup of Excellence in this one!

I should warn you... a tasting like this could result in you ditching your traditional coffee pot!  Just saying.
Flight 1
Burundi A+ Kayanza Bourbon

Flight 2
Rwanda Maraba III Cup of Excellence #17
