This past year Dallis Bros Coffee had a seat at the judging table in the Honduras Cup of Excellence Competition. The competition environment is always incredible because in some cases a coffee that one group of judges falls in love with does not gain as much favor with another group, which can cost a given coffee a spot in the top final round. Reina Mercedes Claros celebrated last year when her Finca Liquidambar coffee placed 15th overall. Fortunately we were there when the same farm produced a coffee that we thought should have been in the top ten, but fell just one place out of the top finalists in the country. Reina Mercedes Claros found this 7 or so hectare farm in rough shape when she took it over just four years ago, but clearly her hard work has brought incredible results. Reaching national and international acclaim with consistently impressive outcomes at Cup of Excellence has solidified her family’s place amongst the finest coffee farmers in the country. She has 10 workers (8 are family members) all year round and about 30 workers during harvest that she brings from a nearby community.

Lincoln, the gorgeous new project at Lincoln Center put together by the Patina Group with star chef Jonathon Benno, made their big debut this past week to coincide with Fashion Week. On the menu, dressed in black: the rich dark roast coffee blend put together specially for them by Dallis Brothers Coffee.
They will open to the public on September 24. Order coffee with your meal and if you wish, give it accents of milk and sugar. It’s versatile, and anyway you drink it, it will be one of the star components of your meal ensemble.
The event benefited the PS41 Green Rooftop Living Laboratory which furthers nutritional education within the school system in order to help combat our country’s nasty growing epidemic: childhood obesity. Special guest chef Mike Anthony of Gramercy Tavern attended to support this project and stopped by to try out the Fair Trade Organic Sumatra we were brewing in press pots. Commerce, who also serves Dallis Bros. Coffee, was also there with fabulous falafel.

In conjunction with the 2010 World Barista Competition, RBC NYC is premiering some of the countries top coffee specialists at “Coffee As a Culinary Medium.” On June 24, from 7pm – 9:30pm, five expert baristas will present the signature drink they created for this year’s regional and national competitions. Each barista will discuss the process of how they created a signature beverage and used culinary technique and flavor pairings to compliment their chosen espresso.
Drinks will be crafted on the world-renowned Slayer espresso machine alongside other cutting edge technology. To experience the fruits of their labor, a limited number of $20 tickets will be issued to sample a flight of all five drinks. Partial proceeds will be donated to Coffee Kids, a non-profit organization that provides aid to coffee farming families all over the world.
The menu includes items such as the “Bexar” by Aaron Blanco of The Brown Coffee Co.which uses a base of mascarpone cheese with agave nectar folded into it, and freshly pressed blueberry juice over which a shot of espresso is poured. Neil Oney of Tamp Tamp, Inc. created the “Chocolate Pear Du Creme” which uses a hollowed Bartlett pear, lined with vahlrona chocolate. On the inside lays a homemade hazelnut whipped cream, cooked pear puree, and espresso. Other participants include Katie Cargulio of Counter Culture Coffee, Dan Streetman of Dallis Bros. Coffee and Erik Becker ofRBC NYC.
In addition, RBC will be streaming the three-day World Barista Competition live on our flat screen TVs.

You can stay in touch with us through our website, this blog/news section, twitter, facebook and our Flickr page. As all our social media initiatives are just getting started (but we’ve been working on them for almost 2 years now), I wanted to introduce you today to a little piece of it, our Flickr page.
