Join us on Saturday, September 2nd as we kick off our second Roaster Takeover, this time with Copenhagen-based roaster Coffee Collective. Similar to beer tap takeovers, our Roaster Takeover series takes an immersive look at a roaster we admire from around the globe. Coffees from our featured roaster to be prepared across our entire brewing capability as batch brew, flash iced coffee, espresso, pourovers and retail packages.
Coffee Collective began in 2007 with four Danish coffee professionals dreaming of a business that highlights the link between farmer, roaster and barista unified to create memorable coffee experiences for their guests, in turn driving money back to the folks who grew the coffee that is consumed. We are extremely impressed by their DirectTrade model which commits to pay farmers at least 25% more than FairTrade and requires the company to visit their farmer partners each year. Coffee Collective's commitment to next-level transparency is evident in their placement of the price paid to each farmer on the front of each retail coffee bag.
Coffee Collective's offerings will be served at SMCo. starting at 8am on Saturday, September 2nd. Supplies on these coffees are limited so stop in and try them while you can!
