We would love to invite everyone down to ‘Century General Store’ for cupping and a wee discussion. Zack and I would like to talk a little bit about what we have learned in the past six moths. We have been roasting seasonal specialty coffee in Leith since the beginning of the year, we have underdeveloped, we have baked, burned and basically ruined a small amount of coffee. We have also discovered beautifully bright, sweet and clean coffees that have blown us away and we have learned heaps in the process. It’s been hard at times and its been fun most of the time. Lots of fellow coffee professionals in Edinburgh have supported us in various ways so to say thanks we will are putting on this small event where you can taste our coffees, hear our take on the specialty coffee market and we will offer you a beer or a gin and tonic after.
