Our Roastmaster Brandon Riggs and Thom Swain headed to Traveler’s Rest, SC over the weekend of January 22nd for the Southeastern Roaster’s Cult retreat. Fun, fellowship and education followed. Over the weekend, Brandon led a class on roast profiling using Laotian coffees. Here are some pics from the weekend!
Stockton Graham & Co. had a great time visiting Beyu Caffe for a coffee cupping and their Grand Opening. What a great stop right smack in the middle of downtown Durham! Not only was the coffee tasty (we are a little biased), but the food was excellent, too. The Bull City is lucky to have Beyu. The cafe makes for a great stop before and after seeing a show at the Durham Performing Arts Center.
Here are some photos from our visit:
