How many cafes are you going to walk into and see that the "Brew of the Day" is an award winning coffee? Easy answer... not many. As far as we know, there are only two Cup of Excellence coffees available right now in all of Cincinnati... and we have one of them!
The other day one of the Velocity Bike & Bean regulars told me that the Rwanda Cup of Excellence is the best cup of coffee to date that he's had at Velocity. Today I put out 6 (six) fresh roasted bags of it. So... get over here and snag one before they're gone!
Coffee Nova v.2 A Success
Today was our second Coffee Nova event and it was a blast. Eleven of us took two different coffees (Burundi and Rwanda) and explored 7 different brewing methods. It was so cool to see how differently each brewing method changed the result in the cup. When it was all said and done, we all had a new appreciation for just how complex coffee can be - and for how much we short-change ourselves when we only brew it in an automatic drip coffee maker!
The traditional coffee maker did not even come close to equaling the flavor, aroma and complexity of the other methods.
