With all the different brewing devices and preferences around here, we thought it would be interesting to see what our staff uses as their primary brewing method at home. This graphic represents all employees at Verve, from our baristas and roasters to our warehouse and office staff. We sent out a survey asking how everyone brews coffee on a regular basis, what kind of grinders they use, and how many cups of coffee they typically make at a time. Check it out to see where your favorite method fits into the mix.
After seeing our internal results, we thought it would be even more exciting to see how all of you brew coffee at home. If you’d like to contribute to our customer infographic, click the link and let us know how you brew: How You Brew.
Unmistakably different than traditional pour over or french press brewers, the Aeropress offers a quick and easy way to make coffee anywhere.
This month, our good friends at La Marzocco USA are hosting a four-city event series dubbed “Pressure + Flow”. It’s free to the public, with events taking place in Los Angeles, San Francisco, New York, and Chicago. The San Francisco installment takes place this Saturday at the Guerrero Gallery.
The event is broken into two parts:
PRESSURE: A guided hands-on learning experience with the Strada EP. Hear about how the Strada EP came to be, what we’ve learned about brewing coffee using the Strada EP as a platform, then spend time with the machine.
FLOW: This session will give an overview of water science, the interaction of coffee and water, and leave participants with information on how to test their water and make informed water conditioning purchase decisions.
10-12pm // Pressure Session #1
2-4pm // Pressure Session #2 (same content as session #1)
4-5pm // Espresso Q&A with La Marzocco’s Scott Guglielmino and Verve’s Chris Baca
5-7pm // Flow Session
If you love espresso machines, coffee, and water you should swing by to play with all the toys and learn something to boot!
