Sunday Feb. 3:
A Syphon bar demo and presentation of Zero Defect Coffees roasted by master roaster Simon Hsieh will be held at an open space in Arlington TBA. The Barismo hosted event will be held from 2-4pm and will feature some fantastic coffees we won't name online. There will be a surprise coffee or two that are air freighted from origin (Kenya no less) to go with a selection of top tier coffees.
The Syphon Bar will feature multiple vac pots running simultaneously as well as a demo on brewing vac pot, and a presentation on defects in coffee followed by a meet and greet with Simon Hsieh. The possibility of a sorting competition for education purposes and other items to be decided. This event will cost $15.00 and due to the price of these coffees we have a space limit which may fill up quickly so please register in advance.
