Staycation Week - Cupping at Toby's Estate

Last week was Staycation week at Petite Alma! In the sprit of spring, we are got out of the office and explored interesting spots around town.

One morning we headed to Toby's Estate in Williamsburg to learn the basics of coffee cupping. Similar to a wine tasting, a cupping is a way to compare varieties of coffee. We sniffed and slurped our way through four different samples, picking out hints of lemon, chocolate and wet leaves. Our friendly instructor, Mike, gave us the skinny on espresso drinks and answered our home brew questions. 

After the cupping, we lounged in Toby's bright, cozy space and enjoyed soy cortados and single origin pour overs. 

Next up, the Noguchi Museum.
