Pour-over coffee demo/event this Saturday 3/5 in Lexington Center

I ran across this while visiting the Barismo website this AM, and figured that Hounds of the coffee persuasion might be interested. It's an unusual venue for a chow-ish happening, so I thought I might share the info here.

The short take on this is that one of the Barismo guys will be doing pour-overs at the Ride Studio Cafe in Lexington Center from 9-5 this Saturday. If you are the least bit curious as to whether this method makes a difference compared to whatever you currently do to brew coffee, this could be a nice way to find out.

For my part, I tried pour-over method coffee at Barismo a year or so ago and was astounded at the difference compared to my normal brewing methods (French Press or Aeropress). Since then I did purchase a setup (as described in the blog entry linked above) and can say two things: it takes practice, and you can get some amazingly good results.
