On Thursday, October 25th, roughly 80 people gathered together in Chicago at Intelligentsia’s Coffee Bar for the 6th in a soon-to-be-concluded series of Sprudge.com public cupping parties.
35 Kenyan coffees from 22 distinct roasters from as far away as Melbourne, London, and Copenhagen including Chocolate Fish Coffee Roasters were tasted.
The event itself was smooth and easy, presided over by Intelligentsia co-owner Geoff Watts, who spoke to the crowd about his experiences in Kenya and why Kenyan coffees are so uniquely delicious.
Quote Mr. Watts: “What we’re doing here today is really special. These are probably some of the best Kenyan coffees produced in the 2012 harvest season, and so this is really a treat.
I've cupped hundreds of Kenyan coffees in a room before, but never ones that have been pre-selected by top roasters. What an amazing opportunity.”
Thanks for the invite Sprudge.com, you guys Rock!
