During last Sunday, 19th of February, I organized the first Wine Workshop at Legit Coffee Co.
The topic was quite festive – Sparkling Wines.
There were eight different sparkling wines on table:
All attenders got a chance to find out the many styles of sparkling wines, different production methods, different terms of labelling and finally they could try them with different finger food.
Seven of them were a perfect match.
Don’t miss the next Wine Workshop.
So many coffee roasters are available on the market, that is difficult to pick up just one, which will be OUR favourite.
That is why, I never stick to the one roaster. If possible, I taste, drink, cupping as many as possible.
My new coffee for this month is roaster from Prague – Czech Republic.
And they ROCK!
As a Head Barista at LEGIT COFFE Co., I ordered 7 (seven) different coffees. All of them arrived at the beginning of February and I run public cupping, to introduce them to our Guests.
The set up on the table was:
Ethiopia Yirgacheffe Kochere
Honduras Edwin Pineda
El Salvador Angelino Landaverde
Guatemala Finca El Pilar
Espresso TAM DEM (El Salvador)
Ethiopia Sunyirga Natural Espresso
And… Very good Columbia DECAFE
Some of them, you can still buy at Legit. All of them are packed in 350 g bags, so they least for longer.

Pleasure which giving me cooking is bigger always when I can share the food with other people.
I always dream about my own restaurant and to find out if I can manage it, I decided to start with the pop up events.
On those evenings, I presented 5 tasting dishes, cooked by myself to which, I proposed 5 different glass of wine.
My first pop up I have done in December 2016 and I hosted 14 Guests.
The menu during this evening was quite exciting:
Salmon Ceviche & Johann Donabaum – Gruner Veltliner Federspiel Johann | Austria / Wachau
Quail Broth & Equipo Navazos – La Bota de Manzanilla 42 | Spain / Sanlúcar de Barrameda
Porcini & Ricotta Ravioli & Cantina Tramin – Pinot Bianco Moriz | Italy / Alto Adige
Wild Venison & Altesino – Rosso di Montalcino | Italy / Tuscany
Tiramisu & Altesino – Vin Santo D’Altesi | Italy / Tuscany
The whole idea was about food and wine pairing and was great.
IN VINO VERITAS – In Wine We Trust. Although thousands of different grape varieties exist, most have only local relevance. A few, though, have a global reputation, either because they are widely grown or because of they responsible for giving one or more of the world’s great wines.
