A special coffee tasting and talk is to take place on Monday 19 October at The Royal Scots Club, Edinburgh, as part of its regular series of Scottish Speaker Lunches.
The event, All About Coffee, will be hosted by Scottish Barista of the Year Catherine O’shea and after the usual delicious two course lunch, guests will be treated to a tasting of four different coffees along with an explanatory talk.
Cat is a coffee expert and professional coffee roaster and taster who has been working in the coffee industry for some years. She is currently manager of the Broughton Street branch of Artisan Roast, award winning gourmet coffee roasters that supply coffee to top cafes and restaurants throughout Scotland.
‘The Club’s Scottish Speaker Lunches have proved very popular,’ says chairman John Lloyd, ‘and last month the diners welcomed Michael Martin, project director for the new Forth crossing, who gave a fascinating lecture on the highs and lows of his position. Coffee, it seems has its place in his life, keeping his team going, so this month’s talk will resonate, I suspect!’
