Description: Join the Arriviste crew for an educational exploration of interestingly unusual coffees! We’ll be trying out six different coffees on pour-over from regions that are not currently known to produce specialty-grade coffee or from established growing regions where the farms are using new agricultural techniques to elevate the quality of their crop. We’ll talk about the farms, the farmers, and what we think makes their coffees tasty and interesting. The tasting menu will feature coffees from Brazil, China, Colombia, Hawaii, India, and Myanmar. Admission is $5, which gets you a generous pour of each coffee. Participation will be limited to the first 20 registrants.
