Again, I was invited to help CrafTEDxCoffee at TEDx Amsterdam at the teally amazing venue the Concert-Gebouw. I had help from my good friend Nick this day and we had a really good time. Several big and small roasters from the Netherlands joined hands together to present a variety of different coffees from Ethiopia, Kenya, Guatamala, Mexico and even Panama to the attendees. The reactions were beyond belief, everyone liked the idea of presenting a different coffee at every break betweens the sessions. Overall it was a great succes.
I really like to thank Gerben Hettinga from Synesso for inviting me over.
Mexico la Retina, Stadsbranderij Noord
Ethiopia Knots Family, Head First Coffee
Kenya Gatomboya, Espressofabriek
Guatamala el Socorro, Single Estate Coffee
Colombia San Alberto, Het Koffielab
Ethiopia and Panama, Bocca Coffee
I also had the Yirgacheffe from Giraffe Coffee Roasters on Synesso, Mark did a really good thing there. Also the coffees from Lot Sixty One really impressed me.
Overall it was an awesome event, still a little bit shakey and hung over but I’ll live 😉
