Tooker on Ethiopia

Four Barrel Coffee in San Francisco, California, hosted a presentation and cupping last night in their new “annex” space around the corner from the café and roastery. The owner of Four Barrel, Jeremy Tooker, presented a slideshow (made up of a slew of gorgeous images shot by the man himself) and talk on his experiences sourcing coffee from that region of the world. The presentation is to be one of many events to be held in the new space.

Afterwards Justin, Pamela and Jeremy generously presented all thirty people in attendance with a cupping of various Ethiopian coffees.

Much thanks to all for both a wonderful presentation and an expertly run cupping and I am looking forward to more such events in the future. Highly recommended.
