Saturday morning we arranged a USA takeover of our cupping table, and invited London coffee lovers to come along, and taste what some of the best US roasters are producing. While the more or less unanimous favourite was the Thunguri AA, Kenya, from Heart Roasters in Portland, a full list of coffees featured were:
Heart (Portland, OR)
Thunguri AA, Kenya
Intelligentsia (Chicago, IL)
Kunga Maitu, Kenya
La Tortuga, Honduras
Toby's Estate (Brooklyn, NY)
Bajo Mirador, Colombia
Santa Ines, Colombia
Sightglass (San Francisco, CA)
Stumptown Coffee Roasters (Brooklyn, NY)
Joe (New York City, NY)
Be sure to keep an eye on Twitter as we plan to hold plenty more of these events.
The thing about visiting friends in the States is that you invariably come away with a lot of gifts. When your friends just happen to work for the best coffee roasters that a nation has to offer, you invariably come away with gifts that are also delicious.
And there's too much coffee here for just us to drink, so we'd like to share it with you all. Come and taste the freshest offerings from Heart (Portland, OR), Intelligentsia (Chicago, IL), Toby's Estate (Brooklyn, NY), Sightglass (San Francisco, CA), Stumptown Coffee Roasters (Brooklyn, NY) and Joe (New York City, NY) with us, this Saturday morning in our Clerkenwell store.
