I was lucky enough this past Tuesday to take part in Yelp Orlando’s #ORLANDOMADE series! Each month for 2015 yelp is giving a select few an inside look behind the scenes in local kitchens, headquarters and production facilities all over the city. Celebrating all things Orlando! I RSVP’d to the March event that took place at Lineage Roasting Coffee, located in the East End Market.
I got to meet Ms. Andi, the wonderful Yelp Orlando rep for the first time, and the awesome owners of Lineage, Ryan and Jarrett. I had the pleasure of partaking in my first ‘cupping party’, sampling some out of this world brew, and learn much about the coffee its self! Ryan + Jarrett really know their stuff, you can tell how passionate they are about what they do.
We want to tell great stories with our coffee. We want to tell the story of the farmers that grew it by roasting in a way that highlights the subtleties and nuances of each origin, region, and microlot. We’re strategic in our sourcing practices to source only the truly exceptional coffees from people that we can put our dollar behind.
We want to tell the story of our roaster- the experimentation, attention to detail, meticulous adjustments until each and every roast reveals the distinct character of the bean; never to cover up imperfections. Each batch is cupped and inspected for quality before it ever reaches our café or is bagged and sent to you.
Finally, we want to be a part of your story. Whether it’s a barista crafting you a drink with patience, skill, and artisanship in our café or it’s the package of beans you take home, we want to be a part of it. Coffee brings people together. Coffee facilitates creativity, connection, and comfort. With us, you don’t just get an amazing cup of coffee- you get to sip, pause, and drink it all in. There are moments in life that are worth slowing down and savoring. And we want to be right there with you.
Prior to my visit this week, I had never been to the East End Market, or Lineage and suspect that I will soon be a regular! I had an great time and cant wait to go back!
Yours in Style,
