We don’t serve a coffee until we’ve visited the roastery and assure that they know what they’re doing. Ayr traveled cross-country in August with his family (in a retrofitted Clover resupply van!) and had the opportunity to visit the beautiful Four Barrel roastery in San Francisco.
Even before he returned, we got a package from Four Barrel and an excited note with lots of samples.I recognized Four Barrel – I had first tasted it last April when Anna took me to the Mill in San Francisco.
We’re starting our Four Barrel partnership with a really adventurous coffee: Bulga from Ethiopia. It was grown and milled by a co-op of growers and was produced despite an extremely rainy season in West Arsi. We’re going to set up a coffee and donuts event at Harvard Square where you can meet the roasters and hear a bit more about their really strong relationship with the growers in Ethiopia. Right now you can try it at Clover Kendall Square, and it will be at other locations in the coming days. Welcome a taste of Cali to Clover!
