It has been a busy few weeks…

We competed in the “Americas Best Espresso Competition” at CoffeeFest in NYC last weekend. While we didn’t make it to the round of 16 on Sunday, it was a great experience.

Connecting with our old friends Roberto and Ryan from Nuova Simonelli was great – Ryan was also my tech for the competition. Anything I needed, he was right there to help. I used their beautiful new “Black Eagle” espresso machine to compete – wish I could have brought it home.

Met our coffee brokers, that up until now was just a voice on the phone. They offered their considerable cupping expertise when I was dialing in on Friday.

The seasons are starting to change – we are expanding our cold brew offerings this summer, so look for some new great coffees on the bar.
