Slowing Down and Cooling Down With Slow Food NYC

Slow Food NYC at Irving Farm Training Lab

We who love coffee know that without food, there would be no coffee, because we all would have starved to death. Sustainable food, then, goes hand in hand with sustainable coffee, and it was with excited hearts that we welcomed our friends at Slow Food NYC to our Flatiron training lab last Monday for a hot summer night that was all about staying cool.

We led a class of 14 Slow Foodies on a guided adventure of cold brewing, icy pouring-over, and of course…cool coffee cocktails, all based on our summery sweet Amaro Gayo coffee from Ethiopia.

This was our first time teaming up with Slow Food NYC…and definitely not our last. We’re looking forward to more collabos and classes in the future, and we’ll be sure to let you know.

In the meantime, here’s a peek at our night with Teresa, Josh and Angelika schoolin’ Slow Food on cool coffee.

We had a blast cooling off these true food enthusiasts, and can’t wait to start warming up for the next class soon!
