Barista Bash 001 Invite
Last Friday, Peter and I spent the majority of our work day meandering throughout Louisville, visiting as many coffee shops as we could. The primary purpose for this venture was to make people aware of Prima Coffee's existence, and, secondarily, to invite baristas -- and anyone else interested -- to our very first Prima Coffee event, Barista Bash 001.
Funky nomenclature and numerology notwithstanding, we're planning this little shindig with the hopes that it will be Louisville's very first barista jam that would be worth writing home about. There have been several events (tastings, mini-jams, jams) that have taken place over the past year or so, but nothing, to the best of my knowledge, has been large enough to actually warrant closing down a shop for the evening just to throw a coffee party. With Bash 001, we'd like to set a high standard for everything else coffee-related that happens in Louisville.
We're pulling into town Chris Deferio of The Coffee Institute. Baristas from around town will get an opportunity to play with a paddle-group machine, something many of them have not even heard of. Coffees will be brewed and offered using Hario equipment, the stuff of the "slow coffee" movement that has become increasingly popular over the past year. Best of all, baristas will have an opportunity to meet many of their peers in a coffee-centric setting, an opportunity that has been sorely missing from Louisville's coffee scene.

Ever forgotten water on the stove until it evaporated... needed to consistently maintain the temperature of your water without constantly monitoring it... been frustrated that your old kettle could not be removed from its electric base for easy pouring and cleaning? The Pino Digital Kettle Pro is the answer to these water heating frustrations! With such standard features as a Digital Display with which the water temperature can be set and maintained, an easily detachable base for quick and safe pouring and cleaning, an easy-to-read water gauge, and "No Water" protection which automatically turns the kettle off when it runs out of water; the Digital Kettle Pro is one of the top kettles for heating water quickly and efficiently.
The Fretta Iced Coffee Brewer is Hario's answer to brewing the perfect cup of iced coffee. Hario has combined their famous V60 brewer with a decanter and plastic diffuser to assure that the coffee is quickly cooled by hitting ice immediately after the brewing process. This quick heat transition is important in conserving the flavor of the coffee. The Fretta comes with 10 size 02 paper filters. We recommend that you purchase extra filters as well. To do this select filters as an add-on from the options on the right or go to our Hario 02 filter listing. Also recommend is a pouring kettle. We offer both the Hario Buono Kettle as well as the Kalita Wave Pot Kettle in the drop-down menu on the right.
