Would you like some Wine with your Coffee?

Sangmok and his wife Kyonghee joined us for an intimate Pinot blind tasting back in January. Sangmok had heard the talk about blind tastings at lunch and had been dying to give it a try. I asked Bob and Carolyn to join us. Carlos was looking for something to do, given his family was out of town, so he joined us as well.

Cheese plate and 4 glasses of Pinot, what more could one need?

We tasted, discussed, and enjoyed each other's company.

Sangmok and Kyonghee's first time out and they knocked it out of the park. The Flowers was a great choice!

Coffee Time

After tasting, Kyonghee, our resident coffee expert, made a scrumptious pot of coffee using Rwanda coffee from Wracking Ball Roasters and the "pour-over" method. Everyone that partook loved it and was impressed with her knowledge of coffee.

After dinner coffee really hit the spot
