This past week was a pretty exciting week in the world of specialty coffee. The US Coffee Championships: Nashville Qualifier took place. Baristas, roasters, coffee enthusiasts, cuppers, etc. competed in 5 different coffee-related events to earn a spot at the US Coffee Champs. The winners of the US Coffee Champs will go on to represent the US at the World Coffee Champs.
Looking back on his roots in specialty coffee in Detroit, Max and Family look forward to planting themselves in Western North Carlina and working to brew up a new culture in hospitality and specialty coffee. If you are in the Asheville area, hope on over to Farewell.
The first time I brewed this coffee I could not help but smile without end the entire time I drank it. Maybe it was because of the acidity…however, it also could have been due to how surprising and clean it was. If you are looking for distinct clarity and vibrant flavor notes, I would definitely recommend trying out Halo Hartume by Cooperative Coffee Roasters.
