Did it need all those CAPS, it did indeed because some of the most renowned roasters in Europe have generously donated their espresso beans.
Had a great conversation with TeAro about their upcoming event this weekend. Here's my condensed version of our interview (with my inputs)
When: Saturday, March 31st
Time: 7pm onwards
Who is being showcased:
UK: Has Bean, Square Mile, Origin, Monmouth, St Ali
Norway: Tim Wendelboe,
Denmark: Coffee Collective
Wait... so this is really UK + Scandinavia (hmm, is this where all the pronounced micro roasters reside)
Why do should I come?
ESPRESSO Tasting - and with this recession looming over us, who can really afford this $2100+ trip to visit these shops, I mean let's put it in perspective...
$10 Entry - donation to Coffee Kids is 0.47% of the actual cost, plus you get espresso shots.... DEAL!
What if I dont like espresso, any brewed coffee?
No brew coffee just espresso but there is also beer and wine!
Wait, did you say BEER?
Yup, Beer is from Bellwoods Brewery (opening on Ossington) - the guys there have made a special beer for us for the event made with our cold brew!
Should be awesome. Plus, one of their other beers will be served. Local wine that we will just pick up for the event.
Is there going to be food?
Fidel Gastro is setting up a pop up there - cuban sandwiches for $7,
$1 from every sandwich will go to Coffee Kids
Espresso Adventures is SOLD. See you there.
Also if you are observing Earth Hour - then come earlier... right!
