A week after our first Potluck Sundays tasting, here are some photos from the gathering.
Coffee Tasting List [scroll to the bottom]
I was delighted and really intimidated to see all your happy coffee faces out to test the waters. On the table there were 11 coffees and almost 30 people came out. That's a smashing start, Vancouver! What that tells me is there is lots of interest in trying new coffees (unless you hated it and you're never coming back). Let's keep the positive momentum forward -->
One of the interesting parts a casual gathering to taste coffees is that there are varying knowledge and skill levels. The vision is to have coffee beginners next to coffee industry soaking up knowledge and exchanging dialogue about how-to taste, what you taste, and so much more. While this may be intimidating or impractical in some senses, the possibilities are exciting.
It's also a great way to know your barista, roasters, and customers. In a way, I don't want people to feel like they're at work it should be fun.
Thank you to Propaganda Coffee for hosting and Kris, Alan, and Andrew for helping make this happen.
