Public Coffee Cupping - Sept 14th
Since we'll all be out and about enjoying Labor Day, Lorca's public coffee cupping that usually happens the first Monday of each month has been rescheduled to Monday, September 14th from 2 - 2:30pm.
Coffee Cupping is a side-by-side comparison of coffees to evaluate flavors. Tasting coffee in this way helps us learn more about our own preferences of coffee palette similar to wine tastings (body, acidity, mouthfeel, region). Every cupping is different at Lorca as we sample all the coffees available on our rotating pour over bar. All levels of coffee enthusiast are welcome to this free event.
Guest Roaster: Onyx Coffee Lab
We're excited to announce our next guest roaster this summer is Onyx Coffee Lab from Arkansas. Onyx Coffee Lab proudly roasts only direct-trade coffees in small batches of 20 pounds and less. Earlier this year, Good Food Awards named Onyx Coffee Lab's El Zapote from Guatemala as Arkansas' first Good Food Awards winner.
Onyx is known for adding "modern Ozark" flair to its handcrafted drinks like their Coffee Old-Fashioned, cold brew that has been aged in rum barrels muddled with Demerara sugar, chocolate bitters, and a maraschino cherry. While we can't serve any alcoholic beverages at Lorca, we happily brew their delicious coffees on our pour over bar. Right now we have their Ethiopian Guji Hambela, Colombian San Antonio, and a Sumatra Silimakuta. You can also try Onyx's Sugar Skull blend (Colombian and Guatemalan) notes of creamy milk chocolate and walnut as our cold brew.
See a coffee you want to try from Onyx Coffee Lab's offerings? Just send us an email- we are happy to special order a bag for you!
