Coffee Cupping with Vigilante Coffee - Aug 3, 2013
Saturday, August 3, 2013 from 11:00 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
Come learn about the coffee cupping process as we taste our way from Hawaii to Latin America.
Cupping is how coffee professionals evaluate coffees and take compare them against one another. Vigilante Coffee cups every single coffee prior to its release, and will teach you how it's done.
If time allows we will also learn how to brew the perfect cup of coffee! Read up on DC's own Vigilante Coffee in the Washington Post.
Participants will take home a sample of Vigilante's coffee to brew at home. You will also have the opportunity to support other local food entrepreneurs selling tasty treats at the pop-up location.
When & Where
Slow Food DC
The Slow Food DC (SFDC) chapter is a community that promotes and celebrates local, seasonal, and sustainable food sources; works to preserve the culinary traditions of the region’s ethnically and culturally diverse populations; and supports the right of all people to enjoy good, clean, fair food.
SFDC represents the national capitol area, including Washington, DC, Virginia and Maryland. Members come from a wide variety of professions and backgrounds. We organize dinners, tastings, tours, lectures, and community outreach events providing SFDC members an opportunity to explore the richness of our region’s culinary heritage in addition to the diverse array of food and drink from around the world represented in our foodshed. It is our goal to connect our eaters with the biodiverse and sustainable food producers, as well as increase public awareness of slow eating.
