If you’re anything like us, your standard Saturday will sound something like this: roll out of bed about 10.30am – perhaps with a slightly foggy head – shower, dress, head for brunch where a full debrief of Friday night’s events takes place. After brunch our plans can vary, whilst we like the idea of a walk round one of London’s famous parks for a blast of fresh air, the cinema is often more appealing, as is the hair of the dog… Oops.
On the first weekend of December (yep, we’re going there) you should think outside the box slightly when planning your Saturday. We’re talking a cultural celebration focusing around our love of great coffee (don’t worry, it’s not too far out of the box) complete with Q&A panels, hands on drinks masterclasses with Grey Goose and coffee sampling. The event is hosted by La Marzocco, producers of professional standard coffee machines, so you know the coffee will be worth getting out of bed for. The event is annual and this year has the title ‘Out of the Box’ so you can learn about worthy topics like green coffee sourcing, coffee in the media and the art of roast profiling. It sounds like an industry event but everyone is welcome. If you don’t fancy watching the pros taking part in a latte art competition, the evening will see street food, live music and exciting prizes from La Marzocco… To attend, simply register online.
Out of the Box is taking place on Saturday 3rd December, 10am-11pm at Hackney House. To attend, register at www.ootb16.eventbrite.co.uk
