We love to celebrate all the ways beyond coffee that farmers, chefs, and other food and drink artisans bring delight to the world through their thoughtful sourcing and practices. And, let’s admit it—we love sake. In the continued spirit of collaboration, we’ve teamed up with Joto Sake for a special evening of process-focused tastings on Wednesday, August 19th, from 6-8pm at our Upper West Side cafe.
Joto has been importing and distributing small batch sake from a focused portfolio of Japanese breweries since 2005, representing the various regions and styles of this centuries-old tradition, and on August 19th they’ll be serving a delicious selection of their chilled sakes alongside Irving Farm’s newest (and sold out!) limited edition series, the Los Niños Experiments—one harvest of Salvadoran coffee processed four different ways.
Learn about the science and taste of processing both coffee and sake, from the sun-drying of coffee’s cherries to the polishing of sake rice, all while sampling a dynamite grain-and-bean coffee/sake cocktail alongside beautiful cheese and charcuterie furnished by Brooklyn-based importer Food Matters Again.
Join us to get your beverage processing geek on, and share a sure-to-be delectable night on the Upper West Side.
