"Tasting Things Together" with Grown & Gathered

We've been working on a collaboration with Matt and Lentil from Grown & Gathered! I chatted with the pair as we tasted coffee, and talked about the importance of quality, flavour and discussed how we could share what we love with our customers. We wanted to talk about how much goes into growing produce and how much better everything is, when it's grown in a meaningful way. Most of us don't get to taste how wonderful an amazing tomato can taste, or how incredibly vibrant a leaf of amaranth can smell.

So, we've been working on a tasting map. It's an opportunity to taste, smell and cup flowers, fruits, veg, herbs and coffees side by side. We've collected and paired flavours that are interesting to experience together in a logical order mapped out by us.  These may act as associations that translate to coffee, they might promote your awareness of what you are smelling and tasting, or they might just be purely interesting. Each smell and taste may highlight something special in each coffee.

The event kicks off at 2:00pm on Saturday 29th March at Assembly, in our filter room, 60 Pelham St Carlton.

Spaces are very limited, and tickets are $15.00 each. They can only be purchased here
