Four Barrel coffee; Yelp photo from Jamie R.
It’s no secret that the Bay Area has been engulfed in a serious third wave of coffee culture. From debates about the virtues of each different roaster to conversations on the flavor profiles of Central America versus Africa, we’re all pretty well versed on the way our coffee is sourced, roasted, and poured. For a real, in-depth look at coffee culture and production, join the Commonwealth Club on Tuesday May 28th for ~THE PERFECT CUP: COFFEE TALK WITH SAN FRANCISCO’S FINEST ROASTERS~.
A panel of some serious coffee stars, James Freeman (Blue Bottle), Eileen Hassi (Ritual), and Jeremy Tooker (Four Barrel), will be talking about their methods with yours truly, the tablehopper. That’s right, your favorite hopped-up columnist will be there, moderating the discussion. The show kicks off at 5pm with a coffee “cupping,” or tasting, and tickets are $15 for members, $25 general admission, and $10 for students. 595 Market St., 2nd Floor, at 2nd St., 415-597-6700.
