Out Of The Box Athens 2016
It has been a pleasure for all of us at Taf Coffee to coordinate La Marzocco’s most famous event, Out of the Box, Athens Edition 2016 on Friday 30rd of September and Saturday October 1st.
In an industrial loft downhill the Acropolis, we celebrated two days full of seminars, presentations and workshops, tasting new coffees on different machines for new taste profiles.We provided advice not only to all the passionate home baristi that joined, but also everyday consumers and professionals from Taf’s network coffeeshops and we shared our passion about coffee culture. Our visitors got more enthusiastic by standing in front of the new La Marzocco Strada AV and MP, and spent most of the time “playing” with new taste profiles, evaluating cups, experimenting on recipes and discovering the machines’ powerful features. We also presented ten coffees, most of them single estate, new crops, this year’s harvest, new varieties, great microlots, with unique taste profiles, such as Finca Catarata and Fincas Las Minas, from Guatemala, El Pilon and El Pilon Mokka from Costa Rica, Nekisse from Ethiopia, Rosalbina and Julio Cortez from Colombia and so many more.
We are also glad about the seminars feedback,we received a vast follow up from the people who attended and were willing to learn! The event closed with an amusing cupping throwdown, in which 34 people took part, trying to tell apart different filter coffees. A big thank you for attending and remember to spread the coffee culture.
