  1. This is Awesome! If I don’t get tied up I will try to make several of these~

  2. Go. lose your shop, take a sick day, do whatever it takes, but go.
    The conversations that were tossed around at this morning’s cupping were an education in coffee. And the drinks Kacey pulled weren’t no slouch either.
    Great topics surrounding how and why responsibly sourced beans affects the cup, and might cost a coupla more bucks but is so worth it (I mean, Vietnamese Robusta is cheap, right?) and how community will help the entire coffee culture here in the state were just the start.
    And make sure that you taste the Ethiopian Amaro Gayo. If you’ve ever wondered where the subtleties and nuanced flavours that some coffee enthusiasts are in *your* cup, this one will knock you out (yeah guys, I’m gonna gush, again). The blueberry in this cup is not only unmistakable, it’s right in your face, throwing elbows at the coffee to get to your taste buds.
    Just the barest touch of sugar will bring that blueberry out in the Bella Vita cappuccino, too.
    The rest of the coffees were all simply remarkable, but that Ethiopian was an eye-opener.

  3. Psyd! I tried the Ethiopian Amaro Gayo today as well. Absolutely amazing stuff. It’s unlike any coffee I remember ever happening.

  4. Well, unfortunately I couldn’t make it… but, I tried to make up for it. A friend and I Hit up the Downtown Phoenix Coffee Cluster today: Lux, both Lolas, Fair Trade, Cartel, Copper Star, walked in Daily Grind.
    Copper Star, and the new Lola were my favs in decor… but you can’t beat Cartel for coffee! (yet…)

  5. David – glad to hear you made a tour! There should be a prize for people who do it. Some sort of badge.
