First, George Howell and his crew have been extremely supportive of our Cafe project from the very beginning. They believed in us before anyone else did!
Second, George Howell is a local coffee roaster – based in Acton, MA. It’s great having them right down the road; we can visit them anytime to learn the latest happenings in the world of coffee. And learn a bit of history, too; George is, after all, the father of coffee in the Boston area.
Third, George Howell is a coffee staple for the Studio – we always have at least one coffee from GH available for pourover. We've rarely have their espresso as a guest.
Fourth, and foremost for this weekend, we’re getting to try their newest incarnation of Alchemy, with beans from Brazil, Costa Rica, and Guatemala. This set of regions provides a balanced espresso blend with a strong and complex flavor.
Get ready for tasting notes that include nectarine, apricot, and dark chocolate with a cherry finish. Not sure we can wait until Saturday morning!
And if that weren't enough to convince you to stop by, Sal – the Studio’s resident master barista and cafe teacher – will be pulling Alchemy shots all day. He may drink most of the Alchemy so you might want to stop by early!
