Stephen Morrissey on what’s being called “Slow Coffee:”
“Slow coffee” is an attempt to tackle the notion of quantity and convenience as what defines good coffee. We think the quality of the cup is the most important thing. … We’re trying to elevate coffee to its overdue culinary status. Specialty beer and wine are kind of out there in the public; what coffee gives us is, in your hands you have the opportunity to interpret through many different brew methods: the siphon, Chemex. … Depending on what you like, you can articulate that differently: body, heft, mouthfeel.
The contradiction that is “slow coffee.” What’s next?
