Swamp Slurry Paleo Espresso
- Visiting Espresso Team Alert ...
The Beer and Whisky League Marketplace @ Brooklyn Colony seeks to highlight roll-up-their-sleeve roasted espressos from Brooklyn to Kansas City and from Boston to Louisville.
The Beer and Whisky League Marketplace (bwlmbk.com) is a food and retail spot in Brooklyn New York that highlights the best of the cities that used to make up the American Association, aka the Beer and Whisky League, the source of the Brooklyn Dodgers, Pittsburgh Pirates, Cincinnati Reds and St. Louis Cardinals.
The Marketplace is housed at Brooklyn Colony (brooklyncolony.com), a 3,000 square foot event space/bar/restaurant, which is a short outfield throw away from a Park Slope/Gowanus subway stop and yet another short outfield throw the other direction away from the stadium that used to host the Brooklyn Dodgers, Washington Park.
Each week we will serve up our house espresso and a visiting espresso to customers daily from 11AM-7PM (and later for events).
We will also be highlighting the visiting espresso at a the weekly food event, Gowanus Grub (gowanusgrub.com), where New Yorkers can taste your elixer done the manual way.
If your roastery hails from the cities mentioned on the left of this site and you want to take a crack as a visiting espresso, here is how we roll*.
- Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
- We will schedule a convenient time (such that we are not swamped with too many types of espressos to handle) for you to send us 2lbs of your espresso.
- Our technician first calibrate the flavor profile as it tends to vary with the roast.
- The rest will be used for staff and some customers to sample.
- If the reviews warrant it we will contact you and schedule a week to highlight your visiting espresso.
- You need to make sure that, by a date we specify, we have 12 lbs of your best stuff.
- Those 12 lbs will be used on a Friday to Thursday basis in the rotation and also at that week's Gowanus Grub.
- We will have evaluation sheets and comment cards available for people to let you know what they think. Those cards will be forwarded to you at the end of the week.
- We will also happily have your cards available so that these customers can, if they wish, order from you directly.
You risk 2 lbs initially and possibly 12 lbs later and you can get a highlighted week at the Beer and Whisky Marketplace and Gowanus Grub with feedback and, hopefully, some good press, vibes and customers.
*=We are open to other cities but, hey, it's the Beer and Whiskey League Marketplace so those cities get our focus.
