Chicago, Illinois has been selected as the next site for our ongoing series of public cupping parties. We’ll be hosting an integrated event there with Intelligentsia Coffee and Tea on Thursday, October 25th at the Intelligentsia 1871 Coffeebar (222 W Merchandise Mart Plaza Suite 1212). We’re returning to our original cupping party concept by highlighting one specific country of origin: Kenya, home to some of the most beautiful and challenging coffees in the world.
We’ll have more details soon, but event attendees can expect some rare and unique experiences, including education from Intelligentsia’s storied green coffee buyer, Geoff Watts, and a chance to talk directly to producers and experts live in Kenya. Moreover, we expect to field a truly remarkable table of coffee for this event, because, wow, when Kenyan coffee is good, it’s really, really good.
Look for more details and roaster submission info coming soon, but for now, mark your calendars! Chicago, we love you, and we can’t wait to hang out with you in just three short weeks.
