Coffee Potluck x Aubade [July 2017]
July 2017 YVR Coffee Potluck hosted at Aubade Coffee. Coffee Potlucks are a casual meetup to share, taste and talk. Each month CoffeePotluck partners with a venue to host this event. Usually it is the first Sunday of the month. How it works? Brings a coffee and tastes a coffee. If we have a dozen people show up, we may potentially taste 12 different coffees. The baristas will prepare all 12 coffees the same way so you can taste the differences. The preparation method may change each month, sometimes prepared with Hario v60, Kalita, Espro, or cupping.
If you hear about the event last minute and want to pop in there isn't too much pressure to have to bring something. I always have a few extra bags of coffee with me if needed. ;) It's a lot of fun to meet people who love coffee while learning and tasting something new each time!

This time, they were expecting heaps of coffee coming in from down unda from Australia, courtesy of our good mate William Tooley! So, instead of BYOBeans, it was BYOBeer and/or a side dish for an actually potluck BBQ we'll be having after the tasting. Unfortunately the beans got stuck at customs and didn't make it to the event but nonetheless we still got a great coffee tasting from various roasters and BBQ experience! Everything was brewed and tasted via the traditional coffee cupping method.
Below are some photographs I snapped at the last potluck. Enjoy!
