Sunday we’re welcoming Gustavo Alfaro, fourth-generation grower and owner at Cafe Alfaro in Huehuetenango, Guatemala, one of the best coffee farms in the world. Gustavo is the one responsible for the Barismo Pena Blanca you’ve been drinking in our $2 slot. He’s part of a new wave in coffee, where growers and roasters work side by side to create coffee. His stuff consistently places in Cup of Excellence awards, etc.
This event is part of SCAA week which is happening this year in Boston. It sold out really quickly, so we’re making room for an additional 10 tickets. Register here. We’ll be stopping signups at the end of the week.
This is really exciting for us. We’ve never been lucky enough to meet the actual person that grew our coffee. If you get a ticket, bring your questions and get ready to taste. Gustavo is bringing some of the new harvest. We’ll have cider donuts for everybody who joins. And rumor has it Gustavo’s going to be bringing a present for the first 5 people in the door.
