Benchmark + Beer: An Iconic Pairing

We got beer in our coffee, and we couldn’t be happier. When the Benson Brewery moved in next door to our Benson shop a couple years ago, we never really thought that we’d end up working together the way we do now.

The Cupcake Takes Off Its Mask...

This month, January of 2017, we’ll be debuting the Dulce de Leche donut. A soft, dunkable cake donut glazed with a caramel, milk-candy icing and a hint of orange zest. And we're just getting warmed up...

The Coffee Man Screening

The Coffee Man is a full-length documentary film about Sasa Sestic, winner of the 2015 World Barista Championship, and his work in the international coffee industry. Join us to watch this film and to celebrate the goodness of our own local coffee and food scene as Hardy Coffee Co. and Kitchen Table team up to dazzle your tastebuds. We will showcase a new Nicaraguan coffee that evening, paired with the thoughtful deliciousness of Kitchen Table. Arrive promptly at 7:00pm for a pregame of pour-over coffee, food pairings, and a conversation about collaboration in our culinary community.
This event is FREE but tickets are required and limited due to seating.

Please check out The Coffee Man website and trailer to learn more about this film. 
We can't wait to watch it together!

"The Coffee Man follows Sasa from Ethiopia, the birthplace of coffee to Seattle, Washington (USA), the home of the specialty coffee movement and host of the World Barista Championship.
From humble beginnings in war-torn Yugoslavia to his adopted home in Australia, Sasa Sestic’s journey to the 2015 World Barista Championships is a long one. But his dedication and pursuit of excellence carries him through as do his family, his staff, coffee growers and roasters and the vendors who travel with him on this remarkable journey. 
The Coffee Man is an intensely personal, observational documentary that will have you biting your nails, standing up and cheering; and wishing that you, too, could experience Sasa’s Holy Grail: the perfect cup of coffee."

Local artist, Sean Jackson, is going to be working his magic on our Benson storefront this Wednesday and Thursday evenings (5/11-5/12) from 8:00-close.  The overheads will be dimmed and baristas working by lamplight so as not to interfere with his process, but please know we are open and serving and giving you a front row seat to the action as the windows are turned into an aerial map of our beloved neighborhood streets.  
Please give him a follow on Instagram (@SEAN_W_JACKSON) and an atta boy in person this Wednesday and/or Thursday night!
