where your coffee comes from

We've done a few blog posts that focus on where our coffee comes from and the people who grow it:  The washed vs. natural process, Organic honduras COSMA, the women behind Sumatra Ketiara, the history behind Monsooned Malabar, and Askanesh of the famed Ethiopia Amaro Gayo. Now, there's an excellent film that brings it all together that we hope you join us for this Sunday… 

A Film About Coffee follows the production of coffee from farms in Honduras and harvests in Rwanda to its global consumption. Listening to farmers, buyers, roasters and baristas about the crop’s economic and environmental implications both locally and abroad, the narrative travels to coffee shops in Tokyo, Portland, Seattle, San Francisco and New York, with stops in between. See trailer. 

april showers bring may events   

Sunday, May 3rd, 3pm-5pm: "A FILM ABOUT COFFEE" special screening by Berkshire International Film Festival (BIFF), talk, coffee & nibbles at No. Six. With public screenings from Shanghai and LA to Canberra and Helsingborg, this film (best one about coffee) has not been shown in Massachusetts. BIFF is making it happen--thank you, Kelley and Sophia! Flavio will give a coffee tasting & talk about roasting and purchasing green coffee; SoCo Creamery will be scooping their Single Origin Coffee line using Six Depot Coffee (Bali Blue Moon ice cream anyone?); followed by the film screening (including other edible movie munchies & treats and perhaps a coffee stout beer by Big Elm made with No. Six coffee); and ending with a Q&A. Buy tickets in advance as seating is limited: call the BIFF  box office: 413-528-8030; $15 for BIFF REEL Friends; $20 for Non-REEL Friends.
Sunday, May 10th, 4-5:30 - Caroline Kaars Sypesteyn Artist Reception.   Linen, plaster, elemental organic shapes. Better than great. 
Saturday, May 9th, 9am-1pm: First Great Barrington Farmers Market.  We'll be there among growers and makers, selling coffee at the market's new location at 18 Church Street (1/2 block from Main Street). And the season begins!  
Sunday, May 17th, 3-5pm: WAM Theatre Reading "The Tall Girls"  Welcome to Poor Prairie, the dusty, desolate town where fifteen-and-a-half-year-old Jean has been exiled as caretaker for her wild-child cousin, Almeda. It’s a grim, dangerous place to eke out an existence as a teenage girl—until an out-of-towner arrives with a brand-new basketball in tow. Buy tickets and read more here>
Saturday and Sunday, May 23rd and 24th: SUMMERSOUND LIVE and MEMORIAL DAY RACES at TANGLEWOOD. A big pre-season music party (or if racing's your thing, both) for you all with Indigo Girls, Pimps of Joy, West End Blend, and so many more. Come see us there as we'll be keeping the masses caffeinated. Check out the lineup and buy tickets here> or Sign up to run here>
Friday, May 29th 7:00-8:30pm: Premiere of INKLESS live storytelling night.  $5 cover charge.  Theme for the night: "How the ___ did I get here?" Strange, hilarious, fearless and all true. Join us for Inkless, a night of storytelling that will leave your gut hurting, your eyes wet and your ears a bit red. P.S. you might want to come out kidless for this one. Hosted and created by Joseph Chernila. More info on the Inkless Facebook page and some recent media coverage.
Sunday, May 31st 3-4:15: Coffee + Cocktail Mixology Part 2 with special guest Berkshire Mountain Distillers.   We had such a good time last time we made up some cocktails with coffee, (though our mixology skills are not what we'd hope). This time around we thought we'd invite the experts--the very folks who make it--to show us how it's done and taste their amazing wares. We hear they make a mean espresso martini. 
Sunday, May 31st 4:30-6:00pm: OPEN POETRY READING   Come join us and bring along your best works of verse and prose, as well as your favorite classics. Hosted and organized by Steven Amash and hopefully the first of many. 

art in the gallery and cafe

In the gallery: Ken Mikalsen: gorgeous, splashy and mind-awakening 
“As with most artists my personal interests, beliefs and longings influence the art that I make. I am curious about the nature of reality and I am interested in what scientists, mystics and other artists have to say about physical existence. My art is a visual manifestation of those inquiries.”
In the cafe: Linda Baker-Cimini.  Wry, thought-provoking, and just lovely.
