Lincoln proudly serves their proprietary Dallis Bros blend

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.

Dallis Bros at the Taste of the West Village

Sunday, Dallis Bros. Coffee served coffee to numerous enthusiastic West Village food enthusiasts at Taste The West Village (www.tastethewestvillage.com).  Organizers Bobby Werhane and Kevin Patricio (of West Village restaurant Choptank) put together a wonderful event.  Sue Fawver, Greg Jones and Teresa von Fuchs of Dallis Bros. made iced and hot coffee, serving both the Brazilan Nossa Senhora Aparecida from their farm in Brazil and their KBQB Cooperative Fair Trade Organic coffee from Sumatra.  Both coffees are served daily at Choptank, who had a hit at the event with their whole crabs that they instructed attendees on how to crack and eat.

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.

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.

You can see it at http://www.flickr.com/photos/dallisbroscoffee/ or by searching flickr for dallis coffee.

We already have over a thousand pictures and videos of our farm/barista/cafe/restaurant/etc events, our artisanal coffee roastery in Ozone Park, NY, our beautiful coffee farm in Brazil, the farms we source coffee from around the world, detailed pics and video of how coffee is grown and produced, coffee drinks and all sorts of fun coffee stuff. We are a very open company and hope to share our existence and everything that is going on with us with all of you that care for us and that have kept us living well for 97 years.

Serious Eats – Coffee Tree to Cup in Brazil

On June 14th, SeriousEats.com started a 5-part series featuring our coffee farm in Brazil, Fazenda Nossa Senhora Aparecida!

Now, we may want to explain this better. As some of you know, our company has a coffee farm and roastery in the Alta Mogiana region of Brazil (São Paulo state) and a breath-taking 12,000 ft² cafeteria in the city of São Paulo. We’ll have more on this later as our blog has just come to life…

With that said, in this series, journalist Carey Jones goes through the entire cycle of growing and production of the coffee that we serve at Octavio Café in São Paulo. The articles are very detailed and a great read, as they show a coffee production process that is relatively sophisticated, unique in several ways and that challenges many paradigms in the specialty coffee world today.

This is a fantastic introduction to the world of Dallis Bros. Coffee and Octavio Café. We certainly couldn’t have written it better ourselves! In future posts, we’ll explain in more detail how we grow, process, roast and brew Octavio Café.

Stay tuned and have fun!
