Fun Friday: Fratello preview; Prarires

This weekend, Fratello will be the host for the
Prairie Regional Barsita Championship, happening August 6th.
Live stream can be found here.

Heavy competition from the Alberta region; with favourites from local roasters Phil &Sebastian throwing their own in-house competition to find their best competitor.
I'll be keeping a watchful eye on the internet.

Last week the boys over at Fratello Coffee Roasters sent me a large box of Coffee - thru Fedex. After trying to delivery twice (both times I was away on an espresso adventures) I finally went to the main depot to pick it up.
Getting the coffees over only took about 2-3 business days, and the roast dates were clearly labelled on all 5 bags.


On my way back I decided to stop in a visit Sameer over at Fahrenheit and tell about the new finds.

What resulted next was a coffee cupping:
  • Nicaugarin Los Plateres Estate...
  • Popping electro beats
  • iPhone with timer
  • Mahlkonig grinder
  • Cupping bowl
  • Cupping spoons
  • Boiled water
  • Patience; 4 minutes 
Preliminary verdict: Buttery mouth feel, peachie flavours

Hope everyone has a good weekend, get out and enjoy the weather! Summer is almost over.
Happy Espresso Adventures.
