Two weeks ago, in an article titled "Do I Detect a Hint of Joe," New York Times writer Hannah Wallace reported a recent rise of coffeeshop high-culture. She wrote that a dozen or so spots in New York City now offer cuppings, essentially a java-devotee's answer to wine tastings. We read Wallace's article with interest, since a handful of Denver and Boulder shops--most notablyÂ Kaladi Brothers Coffee--have been hostingÂ cuppings for quite some time now. Check out our May interview ("Mr. Coffee") with Kaladi Brothers ownerÂ Mark Overly, and call to arrange for a cupping of your own so you can sniff, slurp, and talk java with the best of 'em. Spots to try: Kaladi Brothers Coffee starts up its cuppings again mid-summer; Uptown'sÂ Fluid Coffee BarÂ hosts them every Saturday at 2 p.m.;Â CaffÃ¨ SoleÂ will arrange one specially for you;Â The KitchenÂ holds them every other month; and beginning this fall,Â Duo RestaurantÂ plans on offering monthly cuppings.
