Wedge + Fig Coffee & Cheese Pairing
A blog post written especially for you by Rob on November 7, 2011
Those of you who didn’t think the idea of pairing coffee and cheese together was a particularly good one obviously missed the highly anticipated event with our good friends (Rebecca, Lisa and Kirk) at Wedge and Fig in Old City last week.
Woody and Rob prepared 3 unique and special coffees (our micro-lot Costa Rica, natural-processed Bali and Nordico Espresso) in 3 different brewing methods (Chemex, French press, and espresso) and paired them with 3 very flavorful and nuanced cheeses and desserts.
The results were dramatic. Not, “Oh God what if Shelley wears the same dress as me to the semi-formal? I’ll just die!” dramatic. But “I had no idea these two things I love so much could complement each other so well!” dramatic. Which, happily, is the type of drama we prefer at OVC; the kind we take part in all the time.
In fact, it was such a hit that there’s already talk of a repeat performance on the horizon. We’ll expect to see you at the next one. Just don’t be mad if we’re wearing the same outfit as you. Shelley told us you wouldn’t mind.
