On Friday, May 25th, a crowd of 80 some people gathered together at Handsome Coffee Roasters, in Downtown LA, for our third in a series of public cupping events. We reached out to dozens of roasters from around the world and did they ever deliver. With cupping supplies and event sponsorship provided by Visions Espresso Supply, we were overjoyed to be able to table 37 individual coffees, from 17 different roasters stretching all the way from Perth to Athens, Greece.
This event was made possible by the expert execution of the good people at Handsome Coffee Roasters, Visions Espresso Supply, and California's own Wilbur Curtis Co., who was on hand with water tower support and two custom Gold Cup brewers, used to batch brew selections from throughout the evening's cupping menu. A sincere thank you again to all of our participating roasters, sponsors, and supporters for making International Delight possible.
The following is a full list of what was served on our table(s) for International Delight. Please note: the list you see below, unfortunately, does not include several of the coffees submitted, but unfortunately delayed by US Customs and shipping delays.
