Speckled Ax will be holding an exciting Panamanian/Gesha coffee tasting this Sunday 7pm at their store on Congress Street.
[W]e will be holding a cupping of 25 samples–give or take–from the upcoming best of panama coffee auction. Most of them will be of the gesha varietal, made famous when it was (re)discovered at Hacienda la Esmeralda over a decade ago, and infamous by Michaela Weissman in her 2008 book, “God in a Cup.” These coffees are, quite literally, some of the best (and most expensive) coffees in the world. Even the samples were pricey. Some of these coffees will sell at auction for upwards of $150 per pound. The chance to taste all of them side by side is pretty extraordinary.
Tickets (there are only 10 available) are $20 each. Call (207-660-3333) or visit Speckled Ax (567 Congress St) to reserve a spot.
