Costa Rica Sourcing Trip
We just returned from Costa Rica and traveled to a variety of micro lots. There is nothing like meeting with farmers and learning more about the beautiful process coffee goes through before it arrives at our roasting plant. So if you haven't taken a tour of a coffee farm for yourself, we hope you can get a nice sense of the process through our pictures.

Check out our pictures on facebook from our March Sourcing Trip to Costa Rica.

This year’s Holiday Blend is a Rainforest Alliance Certified Blend of Guatemala, Costa Rica Tarrazu, topped with a French Roast Indonesian Sumatra. The blend is rich, winey with a touch of fruit and a nuanced dark chocolate finish.
In addition, we will be donating a portion of the profits (15 cents per pound) to a great organization based in Costa Rica, Kids Saving the Rainforest. Founded by two 9 year old girls in 1999, who, seeing destruction of the precious rainforest, were inspired to help save it. The organization has started some successful programs such as a wildlife sanctuary, a rescue/rehabilitation center, a reforestation project - over 6900 new trees have been planted! Also, the "Monkey Bridge Program", building bridges over the roads designed specifically to help save & repopulate the endangered Mono Titi Monkeys; the population has since gone from 1200 to 3700!

Kobrick Coffee & Espresso Tasting
@ The Plaza Food Hall by Todd English

Please join Kobrick Coffee Expert Trainer Joe Palozzi
Espresso Tasting - July 12th 5:30-6:30PM

For this demo we will be taking a tour of the world of espresso - from the 4 M’s of classic Italian espresso-craft, {Miscela (blend), Macinazione (grinder and grind), Macchina (espresso machine) and most importantly Mano (hand of the barista)} to the choice and proper technique for texturing milk, to pouring a perfect heart in your latte. We’ll be talking espresso, cappuccino, and lattes all night long, but with just a couple of sips of the goods, this shouldn’t be much of a task for anybody.

Coffee Tasting - July 14th 5:30-6:30PM

For this demo we will be exploring (and tasting) the different ways we all get our morning Joe – from the humble ‘perk pot of days gone by to the elegant French press to the newly en vogue AeroPress. Come and see how coffee origin, roasting, and grind and extraction method all affect the flavor body and texture of your brew.
