We were delighted to work with our partners La Marzocco UK and host their brilliant annual event Generation Coffee on 12 December....
Demonstrating and celebrating the movement that is the 'third wave coffee generation'. A movement to produce high-quality coffee and consider coffee as an artisanal rather than just a commodity. This involves improvements at all stages of production, from improving coffee plant growing, harvesting, and processing, to stronger relationships between coffee growers, traders, and roasters, to higher quality and fresh roasting.
The day was full of demonstrations, panel Q&A's, tastings, cupping, great food and of course the best coffee made by the best baristas. Some of the highlights included the SCAE competitions, with the two absolutely worthy winners being:
Dave Jameson for SCAE Coffee In Good Spirits UK
Dhan Tamang for SCAE Latte Art UK
Thanks to all that attended, and for those that couldn't here is some snapshots and short video produced by La Marzocco - we can't wait for the next instalment!
