It was a blast participating in The New York Coffee Festival this weekend. There were about 100 exhibitors, presentations about the amazing coffee culture in New York and many major cities in the United States and of course lots of great coffee.
One of my favorite parts was the ‘Sensory Experience’. This experience placed visitor’s senses to the test. They were divided into groups of 6 and placed in small rooms without any distractions. One of the main experiences was coffee aged in rum, whiskey and Chardonnay barrels. This gave coffee unique flavors and allowed visitors to learn to identify these aromas and fragrances.
