Coffee Cupping with Vigilante Coffee
Saturday, April 6, 2013 from 10:30 AM to 12:00 PM (EDT)
Come learn about the cupping process as we taste our way from Hawaii to Colombia to DC. The cupping process is how the experts evaluate coffees and take notes/compare them against one another. Vigilante Coffee "cups" every single coffee prior to it's release throughout the city.
If time allows we will also learn how to brew the perfect cup of coffee! Read up on the Vigilante's cool story here.
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.
