Hotness ... (video at bottom of post)
I wanted to hang with my homies and I wanted to give them a gift... Starbucks and Bacardi came to the party.
Starbucks Barista Ishan Natalie is 3 time SA Barista champion, so who better than he to show us the magic of coffee. He chose the Nicaraguan single source bean, he decided on two styles of percolation; Syphon and Chemex. The difference was phenomenal, with the Syphon providing a much richer earthy flavour and the Chemex with a more citrus lighter body.
Our Barman for the evening was Nick Koumbarakis, Bacardi brand ambassador. Nick really brought it!! Making phenomenal Rum Old Fashions using hand-made coffee bitters. He used a super cool technique, combining the Nicaraguan bean, maples syrup and the entry level bacardi rum. He aged these ingredients in a bottle shaped wooden bacardi "keg"
