Holiday Cupping and Food Drive

The weather is chilly, and the holiday season is in full swing. For the third year in a row, we are hosting our Holiday Blend cupping event, held on December 12, starting at 3pm. This event is our way of celebrating the end of the year. If you would like to submit a holiday blend, please send an email to Ryan Willbur. We look forward to receiving and showcasing coffees from our partners around North America.

Not only do we want to celebrate great coffee, but we also want to support our neighborhood. This year we’ll be collecting donations in support of our local food bank. Ballard Food Bank’s mission is to “Bring food and hope to our neighbors,” and that’s a cause we want to support this holiday season. We kindly ask attendees to bring an item or two to help fulfill the food bank’s wish list.

RSVP to our event on Facebook.

2013 Holiday Blend Cupping

In 2012 with the holidays in full swing, we hosted a cupping event to showcase holiday blends from our roaster partners around the US. We received coffees from more than a dozen roasters from all parts of the country. The cupping event brought together roasters, baristas, and coffee geeks from Seattle and around the northwest for what was a fun way to celebrate the coffee of the holidays.

We’re reviving the holiday blend cupping again this year with a cupping event on December 6th starting at 10am our learning lab in Seattle. The event is open to the public, and free to attend.

This year, we’re adding a giving component to the event, in support of the Ballard Food Bank. We invite holiday blend cupping attendees to bring an item or two to help fulfill the food bank’s wish list.

If you’re not able to join us, but would like to have your coffee included on the table, please email ryan@lamarzoccousa.com; if you’d like to attend the event, all of the details are on our Facebook page.

We hope to see you December 6th!
