A Master Class by a Master Brewer at La Colombe
If you were fortunate enough to have been at La Colombe in Blagden Alley yesterday (5/22) you experienced a Master Brewer, Todd Carmichael, doing what he knows best, brewing coffee.
Todd went through the brewing process of "The Dragon" each time, with deliberation and exactness, stopping all the while to explain to anyone who wanted to know, the what, why and result of each step.
A Master Class by a Coffee mentor and a teacher anxious to share his passion.
By my count, well over 200 people showed for the event, and La Colombe was rocking....like a strange new language, people talked of "Steampunks", Cupping and Micro-Lot, of places where coffee plants provide coffee roasters some level of ecstasy, Haiti, Ecuador, Costa Rica and Ethiopia. Some folks just came for their coffee and quiet time, and were drawn into the excitement.
|Everybody with a question got an answer|
|20+ sessions - that's 40 pots of coffee brewed|
|I thought it would be bigger|
|Stopping the Brewing for autographs|
|Anxious to learn, people just kept coming to see Todd explain coffee & "The Dragon"|
