Add cafe and Helsingin Kahvipaahtimo (Helsinki Coffee Roastery) organized a We love coffee day on Valentine's Day Eve at Add cafe in Aalto digital design laboratory’s facilities in Otaniemi, Espoo. During the event different brewing methods were introduced and coffee was prepared for tasting (2 euros a cup). My coffee was made from their darkest roast, blend no 4, and prepared with aeropress.
At the event Tomi Nieminen from Helsingin Kahvipaahtimo gave an interesting lecture on coffee – where coffee comes from and what steps are needed before coffee is ready to be served. The lecture gathered around twenty coffee lovers to the coolest and whitest lecture room on the campus. I think the lecture and the event in total was good preparation for Valentine’s day – the ones who participated and bought coffee beans home can surprise their loved ones on Valentine’s day with fresh quality coffee and perhaps make an impression with their coffee knowledge.
Do you have beans ready for Valentine’s day coffee? Are you planning a special coffee moment? Perhaps breakfast in bed?
