Like most online businesses, we don’t get many opportunities to meet folks outside of an email inbox. As a result, when someone suggests we do another coffee pop-up, we don’t need much convincing. Not only do we really enjoy getting away from our computers and the warehouse, we love meeting folks face to face and talking about coffee.
If you’re in or around Thornbury this Friday at 11am, pop in for our pop-up at the 3 Ravens Brewery bar, downstairs from our Melbourne office at Cobrew. We’ll have some delicious single origin coffees for you to try, courtesy of our friends at specialty coffee importer, First Crop. You’ll also be able to get hands-on with a bunch of our manual coffee brewing equipment including coffee makers from ROK, Minipresso, Handpresso, and Aeropess. We’ll also have a range of hand grinders including: ROK, Porlex and LIDO. Come down and brew coffee with us and get blasted!
