Single Origin Roasters, as part of The Sydney Morning Herald Spectrum Now, invites you deeper into the coffee universe via this cold brew coffee tasting event. Mimicking a wine tasting (what barista doesn’t want to give their best sommelier impersonation for an afternoon), let the team charge your glasses with chilled coffee which has been cold immersion brewed. They’ll show you what coffee can offer in terms of acidity, flavour (three times the flavour compounds than in wine!), body and aftertaste.
The event is held in the Single Origin Roasters Roast Works in Botany, and there'll be cellar door prizes allocated on arrival, for Chemex, Clever Coffee dripper, coffee packs for home and more.
You’ll go behind the scenes to see their two restored Probat roasters (circa 1965 & 1971), along with the espresso training room and coffee lab, where they conduct sample roasting, R&D and their QC work. It’s in these locales that you’ll move from table to table tasting some of their latest single origin harvests on offer, which the company has sourced, roasted and specially cold brewed.
Travel from Rwanda to Honduras, Ethiopia to Colombia, tasting coffee that mirrors sparkling wine, various whites, reds and dessert wines. Enjoy food pairings too, prepared by their café chefs to complement each key coffee.
What better things have you got to do with your afternoon than sample a carbonated champagne style coffee paired with a light, airy hors’ d’oervre? Through to a dessert wine style coffee with a creamy chocolatey morsul?
A tasting wouldn’t be complete without dropping in an awarded plonk or two: Coffee Cellar Door will include a winner from Cup of Excellence, an annual, rigorous coffee growing competition that determines who’s producing the best of the best from around the world (it’s dubbed the ‘Oscars of coffee’).
Fear not about your caffeine intake, or palate fatigue when it comes to evaluating those later coffees - spittoons will be provided. Though swallow away if you prefer. It’s not like you need to worry about your blood alcohol level.
Coffee Cellar Door is on March 21st, kicking off at 2.30pm. All the tables can be done comfortably within an hour, or for those who find themselves drifting deeper into the coffee universe, stay with us till the doors close at 4.30pm.
