Our March tasting saw us collaborate with Brew Box - a new coffee subscription service and one of Dublins best know roasters - Cloud Picker for an exciting tasting event.
Brew Box is a monthly coffee subscription service that was launched in late 2018 by Roisin Culligan - a passionate barista that earned her stripes working in many of Dublins best cafes. As a Brew Box subscriber, you receive freshly roasted coffee from some of Irelands best know speciality roasters at the beginning of each month - delivered straight to your door.
For the April drop - Brew Box teamed up with Cloud Picker coffee based in Dublin's docklands. Cloud Picker was established in 2013 by Frank Kavanagh & Peter Sztal. Having worked in graphic design and corporate banking respectively, they took the leap and opened up their own coffee roastery. The name Cloud Picker came from their trip to Northern Thailand where they visited a coffee farm in the Doi Chang area on the Thai / Burma border and where they went up through the clouds to see the coffee pickers!
Cloud Picker was Dublin City’s first micro coffee roastery. The team hand roast to order on their esteemed Giesen roaster on Sheriff street, and also run their café at the Science Gallery (www.sciencegallery.com) on Pearse Street.
Head Roaster James and Wholesale Manager Mike from Cloud Picker took us through their current portfolio - with a coffee cupping of origins that included Brazil, Honduras, Colombia, Ethiopia, Kenya and Thailand.
To finish Roisin offered brewing demonstrations for all those avid home baristas looking to get the most from their beans - taking us through the perfect home brewing techniques for the French Press, Aero Press and mastering recipes for Nespresso compatible capsules.
Lovely buzz and thanks to all for coming!
