When our friends at La Colombe Torrefaction wrote the other day to say that they wanted to do something “special” for the upcoming Cup of Excellence Brazil cupping that we have planned on March 4th in Philadelphia, I had pictured ordering pizza and snacks or maybe doughnuts. I should have known better. The guys, as they often do, had something bigger in mind: they’ve moved the event to a space at the “epic,” as it’s described in this blog, Urban Outfitters headquarters campus at the old Navy Yard.

Urban Outfitters Campus

The cupping will be held in the Acid Bath event room, which looks like the perfect space for a gathering of creative coffee types. Very cool, very Philadelphia.
