Travel Channel’s Bizarre Foods with Andrew Zimmern will sample the award winning 2011 Colombia Cup of Excellence at Seattle Coffee Works Slow Bar
Seattle, WA, July 26, 2011: Travel Channel personality Andrew Zimmern will bring his Bizarre Foods Show to film at Seattle Coffee Works Slow Bar on Friday, July 29. He will sample Seattle Coffee Works roasted 2011 Colombia Cup of Excellence, an award winning coffee, which retails for $100 per pound. Seattle Coffee Works is the only roaster in Seattle to sell this coffee. 513 coffees competed earlier this year for the coveted Cup of Excellence crown in Santa Marta, Colombia. Arnulfo Leguizamo, a coffee farmer from Huila, took home the coveted title. Judges noted that Leguizamo’s coffee possessed “the acidity of passion fruit marked by splendid notes of apricot, lemongrass, jasmine, and tamarind.” The liquor had “a creamy, lingering, caramel flavor mellowed by hints of wild honey”.
