On February 14, Square Mile Coffee Roaster, launched Short Stories, a for sale item featuring four stories on coffees sourced in Colombia. This attention to furthering not just the knowledge of where coffee comes from but the story behind the decisions of selecting it and the farm is a cultural step towards connecting customers to the real and imagined beauties of a place they may only drink, for now.
Additionally, this culture is curious in this form of short story telling because of its commitment on this space to the launch of bi-weekly, The Coffee Stories beginning October, 2016.
It’s New York Fashion Week, AW 16. During this week, one full of presentations, shows and parties for the thousands who come to play their role in an event that accounts for billions of dollars in New York’s economic system, there is room enough for coffee too.
Vogue wrote about healthy places to go and featured two destinations for coffee and their expanded locations – Jack Wife’s Freda in the West Village and La Colombe Coffee roasters who will also be expanding in the West Coast. [Note one makes a cameo on our list too].
In addition to expansion being something this culture views as currently trending for this year, so is more room in these expanded places. So, drink up and feel free to take your time while doing it, looks like there is plenty of room.
On Friday, February 12, 2016 This Is Bitten held a food conversation, where nearly two dozen speakers successively took to the stage in about twenty minutes or less to share their story in the journey of their business or their thoughts on contemporary culture – where food is, how social media is impacting the communal story of sharing and the current trends impacting food culture from delivery service to social design. A few thoughts on coffee in the context of the conversation stood out, in addition to the coffee bar provided Chia bar at lunch – a slightly crunchy, smooth cocoa nib with a vanilla marshmallow finish.
