Last winter, we had an opportunity to have our pick of some small Ecuadorian lots Counter Culture Coffee had brought in and used it as an opportunity to have two giant staff cuppings to taste and vote on the coffees that would be served at each of the coffee bars. We were happy to bring our staff together again last week to taste 22 (yes, twenty-two) fantastic coffees and make some tough decisions about which ones to serve our lovely customers.
All shops will also be serving Concepcion Huista (Guatemala) and our espresso coffee will be Sipacapa (Guatemala). Here are the results for the rest:
Eastern Market: Kambarari (Kenya), Elias Benata Sundried (Ethiopia), Finca Mauritania (El Salvador), Olke Birre (Ethiopia)
MidCity: Muso (Kenya), Aleme Wako Sundried (Ethiopia), Olke Birre (Ethiopia), Finca Kilimanjaro (El Salvador)
Union Market: Thiriku Peaberry (Kenya), Aleme Wako Sundried (Ethiopia), Olke Birre (Ethiopia), Los Alpes Peaberry (El Salvador)
These coffees are all available now but many of them are very small lots so don’t wait around long to get your taste.
