”Coffee Common brings together world-class baristas and roasters with shared values, to create unique experiences that introduce people to the nuanced joys of exceptional coffee. We believe that great coffee is, at its best, a collaboration of an empowered coffee farmer, an artisan coffee roaster, a dedicated barista, and an enlightened consumer. We believe that great coffee requires study, experimentation, craftsmanship, and humility. These diverse roasters and baristas, who by most definitions would be considered competitors, come together as a community to proselytize the simple truths around coffee. We look forward to pouring you a cup of the most complex and extraordinary beverage in the world.”
There’s no way I would have missed this. After all, this is what my ”crusade” is all about.
I think we succeed in our task fairly well, pouring great cups of beautiful coffees. Many lives were ruined since they can’t go to their local coffee shops anymore.
I’ll post a more in-depth post later. Overall, working with great baristas from Europe and North America to serve exceptional coffee to people who are there to get new ideas was an amazing experience. Trying out so many good coffees from roasters including Square Mile, HasBean, Gimme! Coffee, Ecco Coffee and brewed by different baristas with different techniques was eye-opening and a lot of fun.
