Recently, we got  a chance to see the roasting process at Vertigo Coffee.

If you ever wondered how a coffee roasting machine looks – here is an old good Probate Continue reading

Latte Art Competitions

Specialty Coffee movement forces baristas to learn and improve skills constantly. One way for the improvement is the Latte Art Competition or Latte Art Throwdown. It happens on a Thursday worldwide and SF Bay Area is not an exception.

We were happy to be a part of the Game 5 South Bay Throwdown hosted by Bellano Coffee (B2) on November 14th at San Pedro Square, San Jose. We served delicious espresso blend Monk’s Momentum roasted by Vertigo Coffee and participated in competition too.

Here are a few photos from this fun evening:

Coffee Tasting

Here is a good news for you coffee enthusiasts!

There are so many great coffee roasters in the Bay Area, so we decided to offer you a coffee tasting where you can try and compare them at a time.

We will have a few options:

1. With one roaster on your choice we will try how the taste of coffee changes depending on the way you brew it. We will start with Pour Over, move to the French Press and finish with Espresso.

2. We will try up to 5 types of coffee from different origins using Pour Over and see how they’re different from each other.

3. We’ll try up to 5 espresso blends from different roasters and compare their taste profiles.

All these options could be modified or combined.

It’s a fun team building activity or a theme for a party. Also, it could be a great gift for your friend who is crazy about coffee.. just like us! ;)
