by

Less than two weeks to go until Coffee House Project. We are stoked about this celebration of coffee here in our home town and will be there in full force. We’d love to see you there (make sure you swing by stands B18, 20 and 21 to say hi). Here are 21 reasons why CHP is going to be totally rad.

What the cup? Join us at the cupping table

Our Head of Coffee, Ashlee Eastwood-Quinn is running the cupping table all weekend. She's pulled together an incredible line up of more than 50 coffees which are available to try for free over 8 different tastings.
