Album Release Party: Trent Rice

No cover charge. Featuring special guest Slow Parade.

Trent Rice releases Beautiful on April 7th, 2017 in association with the Cottage Recording Co. The full length album was produced by Luciano Giarrano and Trent Rice at The Cottage in Atlanta, Ga. Beautiful is one of the last recording projects to come out of The Cottage studios, a buried treasure of a dream that was a major fixture in the Atlanta music scene. The album was sonically sutured by Giarrano who was responsible for its mixing & mastering. Rice performed vocals, rhythm and lead guitar, bass, keys, piano, harmonica, and glockenspiel while also calling to the aid of Luciano Giarrano on keys, drums, bass, alternate percussion and members of Sydney Eloise and The Palms (Sydney Eloise, Damon Moon, and Chandler Galloway) for backing croons and swoons.

Beautiful rings the doorbell of modernity while at the same time evoking conversations between early garage-grunge ethos, pre-electric Dylan and outtakes from the White Album. Rice largely performed the album live, preferring to track the bulk of his lead vocals and the sandpaper jangle of his six string shooter on single, full takes. “It’s OK” was in fact recorded on an iphone in Rice’s kitchen while you can hear the pitter patter of his young daughter in the background.

The album is an earnest statement all on its own though the songs themselves maintain self identity amidst the diametric condition of the space age primate. Each one has been crafted by the watermarks of Rice’s memories and present moments as a father, a husband, a musician, a surgeon, and a human on an empathic conquest to explore the heart. The cultivation of Rice’s native frequencies and melodic labors of love create an electrifying earprint that is truly, ‘Beautiful.’

Ultimate Coffee Showdown: Round One

Taproom is hosting Round One of the Ultimate Coffee Showdown for Atlanta baristas! All events are open to the public, with a buy-in requirement for competitors.

During Round One, baristas will compete in a cup tasters challenge: a timed palate exercise where a competitor has to pick the odd cup out of sets of three cups of brewed coffee. Most number of sets correct in the fastest time wins. 

We'll have sponsored swag and grub, with a special pot of Beerspresso Chili being dished out, first-come first-served!


Additional Tournament Info from Coffee ATL:

This tournament will consist of three separate competitions over the course of three months. They will occur as follows:

  • Triangulation Challenge @ Taproom Coffee, February 16, 2017
  • Brew Battle @ Intelligentsia Coffee Training Lab, March 23, 2017
  • Latte Art Throwdown @ Dancing Goats North Ave, April 27, 2017

For each competition, you will receive 5 points for signing up to compete. At the end of the event, we will award additional points for the top six competitors: 6th place will receive 5 points, 5th place gets 10 points, 4th place gets 15 points, and so on. These points will be totaled and saved from each competition, and will be categorized .

In March, after the Latte Art Throwdown, we will total the points from the previous competitions to determine our Top 3 places. We will also determine the coffee shop winner, based off of points accumulated throughout duration of the competition.

The results will be announced at a Liquid Ambition Cocktail Throwdown, at Octane Westside, on May 18, 2017. In the event of a tie, the tie-breaker will occur on this night.

Sourdough Basics Workshop

When she's not pulling shots of espresso at Taproom, Tess Weaver is a bread baking fiend, constantly geeking out on the best ways to keep sourdough yeast happy (just ask about her "bread thread" texting with like-minded breadistas). 

Tess will be leading us in a super-informative workshop geared towards the home baker just starting the sourdough journey. Have you always wanted to bake sourdough at home and didn't know where to begin? Have you had a starter die on you before? Do you want to troubleshoot your recipe and technique? This is the class for you.

Every participant will receive a detailed traditional French loaf recipe, a list of necessary equipment and ingredients, a 2-quart container to hold starter dough, and a batch of tried-and-true starter to kick off your adventures in sourdough.

Tess will also bake up some loaves and have the finished product available to taste during the workshop!

Tickets are $15 each and include the take-home goodies listed above. Limited to 12 participants.

Flordeliza Kickstarter Launch Party

Carl Caballes - whom you may know previously from Sunday barista shifts at Taproom - is launching a Kickstarter campaign for his accessory design studio he's started in Atlanta. We're supporting him by hosting a launch party! Bonus perk is that we'll also have live music from Freddy Castro (another Taproom barista alum)!

From the Facebook event page:

We're crowdfunding! As a small business, we've been floored by the response the community has shown us in support of our vision and living. Over the last several months, we've experienced a growth in demand and are in need of expanding our current resources to keep up. This means new hires, better equipment, and the best of the best materials we can find. We're looking to you all, our circle of support, for one final push to take it to the next level. Just in time for the holidays!

Join us on September 15th at Taproom Coffee to celebrate growth, love, and generosity. We'll be launching our Kickstarter during the event and encouraging the full backing of our campaign in one night! This means that, as a community, you can choose to back it as one collective. 

If you can't make it, we'll miss you, but don't miss out on the fun! We'll be having an online kick-off party alongside our physical one to make sure you get the chance to take part in the backing of this campaign.

Beer and small bites (by the amazing Tess Weaver) will be provided.
Also, don't miss an exclusive performance by our own Freddy Castro at 8:00!

Hope to see you all there!

"Through the month of August, Love Not Lost has been having a crowdfunding campaign, and we want to celebrate with you! So many people have generously given at www.lovenotlost.org/generosity to help us grow and carry out our mission, and we want to throw a party to celebrate your generosity! 

If you can make it to Atlanta, please join us at Taproom to celebrate. They will have lots of drinks to choose from, and since it's close to my birthday, they promised to have the gluten-free treats stocked as well :) Hoping that many of you who haven't been able to make it to our parties at Octane can join us on the other side of town at Taproom! Everyone is welcome so feel free to invite others, share this, and bring your friends.

We hope you can stop by and say hello, be a part of some great conversation, have a tasty bverage or two, and enjoy the evening with us. Whether you are a donor, a LNL fan, or someone who wants to learn more about what we do, this event is for you! We hope to see you there!!!"
