Coffee Common is a united group of dedicated coffee roasters and baristas that collaborates “to proselytize the simple truths around coffee”. From January 19 through January 22, 2012, Coffee Common is hosting Coffee Common X NYC, a public event at A Startup Store in the Chelsea neighborhood of New York City “to make delicious coffee and help people understand how they can too”. Tickets for this multi-day event are $5 and available online.
Demand for quality coffee is on the rise, but a market filled with strange devices and alien vernacular can sometimes be intimidating. Luckily its easier than ever to find great coffees and to help you navigate all of this, Coffee Common has assembled crew of local and international baristas seeking to distill it all down so each attendee walks away equipped with the fundamentals of delicious coffee.
A Startup Store is “a new story-based retail concept” from entrepreneur and consultant Rachel Shechtman which operates as “a retail environment that has the point of view of a magazine, changes like gallery, and sells things like a store”.
