This month, Trenchermen is proud to introduce Counter Culture as our featured coffee. Here's a note from Joshua Dugue:
For us at Counter Culture, coffee goes beyond a utilitarian product of alertness to more of a prime example of the importance of taste and quality. The result of the focus has put us in partnership with some pretty amazing folks in the food and beverage industry. We've worked closely with restaurants like Woodberry Kitchen, Empire State South, and, recently, Alinea.
It's always a pleasure to spend time with chefs who are sentinels of taste and creativity. Often times they realize just how important and special a coffee can be -- their palates pick up the nuances and uniqueness of the coffee. Trenchermen is a shining example of that mindset, and we're excited to celebrate that shared vision this month.
For the month of September, Counter Culture Coffee will be featured at Trenchermen. Two of our most delicious offerings will be on their menu. Our Biloya Natural Sundried will be a featured cold brew and a foundation of their new monthly coffee cocktail the "Counter Intuitive." Ndaroini from Nyeri, Kenya, will be served at brunch as pour over. The folks at Trenchermen have welcomed us into the fold so that we can work together to present this coffee as delicious as it can be! And the month-long collaboration will all culminate in a coffee cupping and presentation of September 21.
This is such an exciting opportunity for us, and it helps realize our vision when we can work with people who "get it." Chefs Pat and Rebecca have created magic in a pastry pairing with the Ndaroini, and Tona, the beverage director, has done no less in crafting that delicious and refreshing cocktail from the Biloya.
This is a hallmark in Counter Culture Coffee Chicago's efforts to collaborate with food and beverage professionals across the city.
