Discover the subtleties of Single Origin coffee. Like wine, the flavour of the coffee bean varies from country, region and growing year through to the way the raw product is treated.
Join us for a cupping (tasting), of a range of different origins and see if you can taste the difference, and compare and sample with a tasty food match.
Discover the variation that roasting can make to the coffee beans flavour profiles; from a very light roast that brings a very herbaceous and bright character to the very dark roast that permeates the roasting smoke into the bean.
Your coffee experience will start with an intro to Bay Espresso-the Bays coffee experts then find out what “Fair Trade” really means before getting on the cupping. You’ll taste beans from Mexico, Ethiopia and Colombia, roasted to three different levels. The coffee tasting is paired with a food match that will intensify the characteristics of the beans.
