You know that you went to a coffee tour when you had an extreme "coffee crash" (caffeine crash) and came home and passed out for over two hours. Yes, that happened to me this afternoon after a private origin taste testing at The Roasterie, here in Kansas City. Combined with my morning coffee, my post-morning latte, and the many mini-tasting cups at the plant, this was an overload for me and as of today I know my caffeine limit! Let's just say I'll skip a few cups next time I take a class from them.
The Roasterie is a very well-known coffee roasting company here in the city of fountains. I have toured their plant twice, so today was an extra special treat to have a private class on tasting and the discussion of origins. The classes and the tours are free, so I highly recommend visiting their plant and scheduling one for the next time you are around. Our time spent there was mostly asking various questions about coffee and coffee beans, in which the head baristas kindly answered our "not-so-coffee-knowledgeable" ones. (ex: "so light roast is just roasted for less time, right?!"). They also has two locations of cafes among the city, and the roasting plant has one inside too. I have been using their beans at home for years, I suggest trying some out in your own home too!
I have also entered a photo competition on The Roasterie's website, for a chance to win a trip to Costa Rica! I would love, if you had the time, to submit a vote for my photo!
