Stories from the Finca at Counter Culture
January 2, 2008
There’s always magic in the air when the seed to cup circle is completed. Picture with the half head is Tony from Octane, then M’lissa who I have to imagine is a vital part of Octane, then Chris and David who represent Counter Culture Coffee in Atlanta and finally my father, also Edwin Martinez. Chris and David led a blind cupping of two coffees from Cauca and a washed Yirg with a memorable intense aroma. Others attended and collaboratively shared an ocean of VERY specific descriptors that made me want to go back and cup everything again. I still have so much to learn about cupping… Click here to see the descriptors.
I try to spend little time blogging. I find it worthwhile to both be consistent and put up good content. Seems I rarely do both. Last week Nina and I had a great time meeting some serious coffee people that don’t HAVE to talk about coffee. One thing is for sure, for Chris and M’lissa, coffee is not just a fad. And YES! M’lissa did beat me to the punch in with her post.
