Scandinavian Saturday @ SMCo.

Join us on August 19th for Scandinavian Saturday! This is a special series featuring a different Scandinavian coffee roaster on the third Saturday of every month. We’re super excited to bring in some exceptional coffees which until now have not been available in the Capital Region.

This month’s featured roaster is JACU COFFEEWe'll be serving up two coffees from Jacu via v60 pourover, a Kenya and an El Salvador.

About Jacu:
This month's featured Scandinavian Saturday roaster is Jacu Coffee from Alesund, Norway. Started by three friends in 2011, the roasting company is named for the jacu - a bird that is known for eating only the highest quality cherries from coffee shrubs in producing origins. They use this inspiration in selecting only the highest quality green coffee they can find. Look forward to trying a single farm coffee from Costa Rica and a multiple farmer coffee from Kenya. 

About Scandinavian Coffee:
Modern Scandinavian roasters are renowned for their careful, nuanced approach to roasting with the goal of highlighting the delicately complex attributes of each coffee. This typically lighter approach is benefited by access to the highest quality green coffee – a privilege enjoyed in Scandinavia for some time thanks to early advancements in sourcing.
