Over the weekend, we co-hosted a coffee event with the Hong Kong Chapter of  85 Broads, a global women’s network. The ladies wanted something informal for people just to get together and do something fun, so we put together an event that was a hybrid of our Mini Coffee Cupping Experience and our Coffee Appreciation Course. The participants first learned about the origins of coffee and the roasting process, and then were taken on a tour around the world tasting coffees from different regions. Besides the fact that a few men slipped into the crowd, we also found ourselves in the company of the most amazing coffee geeks in Hong Kong!

Here are a few photos from the event:
