Another year here at Urban Coffee Company has drawn to a close and I think on the whole it’s been a pretty darned successful year, but the future is where it is at and 2012 is going to see us continue to innovate and improve your coffee experience. They say the world is going to end in 2012…well, if it is, you can bet your bottom dollar we will have a party and invite you all to mark the occasion, after all, you may as well be drinking a good coffee when facing annihilation!
Next year we will be sending our incredible staff to Union Hand Roasted in London to undertake training at their Roastery and to learn more about the whole process behind producing your wonderful coffee. Of course they will then be able to share their improved expertise with you lucky people! We have been fortunate that you guys have taken to the new filters with enthusiasm and have even been coming in off the street just to ask what the V60 is and to find out why it is better than your ‘average’ 3 hole pour over ceramic-these kind of questions really do make us very happy!
The Costa Rican San Jeronimo Bourbon has been a runaway winner of coffee of the year at both Emporiums and long may it reign. We will be moving over to a more seasonal approach to coffee in the new year as we look to work more closely with our Roasters and ensure that the good people of Birmingham know the best coffee to drink at every time of the year. We have also recently selected a Colombian Timana as our house blend which seems to be going down a treat and we will soon have more information about an Organic Ethiopian Yirgacheffe!
We would like to say thank you to all of our customers that continue to share our appetite for learning about coffee and also to the passionate people that provide, produce and craft our coffee from Roaster to Barista.
