Milano Coffee Wins Two Gold Medals at International Coffee Tasting Awards in Guangzhou

Coffee typically in the morning, and wine in the afternoon and evening.  That arrangement is probably the schedule for many people.  We have an award-winning coffee roaster here in Vancouver: Milano  Coffee.  Below is their press release about their reward, plus when you can try their winning coffee.  Enjoy!

~~~

Vancouver, B.C. –  Milano Roasters wins gold. Master roaster and co-owner, Brian Turko, is celebrating the success created in his “mad-scientist” coffee roasting laboratory after being awarded two gold medals for Milano’s Silk Lili and Concept #9 espressos blends at the prestigious International Coffee Tasting Awards in the category of Non-Italian Blends or Single Origins Beans for espresso. A win for Silk Lili, named after Brian and Linda Turko’s daughter Liliana, feels especially sweet.
The additions of Silk Lili and Concept #9 to Milano’s previous gold wins for blends entitled La Futura, Butter, Velvet, Miscela Royale, Nuovo, Lucky 13, Cognac, Suave Rico, New Italian and Franks brings Milano’s grand tally to twelve gold medals in six years – which is no small feat. All the award-winners are available under Milano’s  Espresso Master’s Reserve line.
“The goal that drives us to keep our team striving for success is simple,” says Brian Turko. “To continually improve on creating and serving the best coffee in the world to our devoted customers and the coffee loving community in Canada.”
The eleventh edition of the international competition organized by the International Institute of Coffee Tasters was held in Guangzhou, China in December, 2017. Of the 162 coffees, 39 gold medals were awarded to coffees from Italy, Canada, China, Korea, Spain, Taiwan and Thailand. Milano’s coffees were the sole winners from Canada. Evaluations are completed by a panel of 28 international sensory judges who taste the coffees blind and have proven skills based of the method developed and established by IIAC and CSA. The International Institute of Coffee Tasters is an independent and scientific association for coffee tasting founded in 1993.

Meet the Makers 

January 25 | 156 West 8th Ave | 12:00 pm to 4:00pm
Milano owners Brian and Linda Turko, and Barry Henry, invite coffee lovers to ‘meet your maker’ on the afternoon of Thursday, January 25 at Milano’s West 8th coffee shop and roasting facility. Linda and Barry will be on the bar making the gold medal winning coffees, while Brian passionately shares all the details behind the blends. Go behind the scenes to see where all the roasting magic happens.
Milano’s Black Series 
Few roasters are producing dark coffees right now,  which makes it the perfect time to reveal Milano’s new Black Series. The luxurious dark roasts produced under this table are unique and special, offering great flavours that are dark but silky smooth. These coffees include Black Beauty, Black Jam, Black Lili, Black Candy, Sweet Black and Perfume Noir and are available at Milano locations.

Espresso Yogurt – a Milano Coffee x Tree Island Yogurt Collaboration

Yogurt and espresso lovers prepare! Milano Coffee and Vancouver Island’s Tree Island Gourmet Yogurt are combining two breakfast staples for a delicious collaboration that’s sure to give a kickstart to mornings. Customers across Canada can look for the product on grocery shelves this March at Milano cafés, Whole Foods, Urban Fare, Nesters, Choices, and anywhere Tree Island is sold.

Tulalip Resort Casino Chefs Trade the Usual Suspects for ‘Bubbles & Fries’

Unexpected Pairings: Tulalip Resort Casino Chefs Trade the Usual Suspects for ‘Bubbles & Fries’
 Poutine Bar and Prosecco Take Center Stage This December

Tulalip, Washington — Bubbles and Fries will be all the craze at Tulalip Resort Casino starting November 30 through December 30, 2017. Executive Chef Perry Mascitti and Sommelier Tom Thompson have teamed up to share their two favorite food and drink combinations in a uniquely inspiring way.

Whether it’s the Build-Your-Own Poutine Bar at Eagles Buffet or the Twice-Baked Potato Fries at The Draft Sports Bar and Grill, guests are encouraged to partner these tempting French fry preparations with a glass of bubbly.

For Mascitti this month-long event is all about the salty fries, and for Thompson, it’s all about the elegant contrast of these sparkling wines paired with these savory treats.

“I want everyone to try it once by taking a fry, placing it in their mouths and following it with a sip of bubbly to experience this food revolution,” shares Executive Chef Perry Mascitti.

“I challenged the entire Tulalip chef team to strategize very special and creative ways of serving their wonderful fries to share with our dining guests,” states Sommelier Tom Thompson. “They took the potato throw down very, very seriously.”

In fact, it was somewhat of a potato war. The Tulalip chef team deconstructed them, sauced them, relished them, cut, and creatively cooked them…all in an effort to spark a newfound love affair worth their weight in gold.

Full menus and additional dining information are available at Cedars Cafe, Destinations Lounge, Journeys EastThe Draft Sports Bar and GrillBlackfish Wild Salmon Grill, and Eagles Buffet.

Shhh…a New Year’s teaser about what will be happening in January. It will be about spirited cuisine, which will start on January 2, 2018. Stay tuned!

Strathcona Beer Company Celebrates One Year with Special Edition Beer Launch and More

Strathcona Beer Company

Strathcona Beer Company

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: November 7, 2017 (Vancouver, BC) – Strathcona Beer Company will celebrate their one-year anniversary this November 17th and 18th with a special edition beer launch called Primo, a Double IPA, and a weekend-long open house with brewery tours. In addition, they will release new branded clothing and feature an art installation in the tasting room from the infamous New York graffiti legend, KR.

Located on the corner of East Hastings and Campbell Street in the heart of Strathcona, Vancouver’s oldest residential neighborhood, this world class beer company and tasting room has quickly become a neighborhood favorite for both locals and visitors from outside the area. In their first year, they have experienced substantial growth with their lineup of classic, local and international beer styles, winning several awards, while constantly striving to push the boundaries of craft beer and design.

Strathcona Beer Company’s collective interests in art, music, skateboarding and design have influenced all aspects of the brand’s contribution to the craft beer scene. They are a community based brewery that is focused on supporting local, from charitable and non-profit groups to incorporating local ingredients into their product.

“We are proud to be located in the Strathcona neighbourhood working in collaboration with local artists like Andrew Dadson and Matt Aiken along with international creators such a Rob Cristofaro from Alife and Craig Costello from Krink.” says Strathcona Beer Company President, Tim Knight. “This has been a year of learning, improving and being humbled by the incredible growth we have experienced to date. We look forward to our second year in business and what we will be able to accomplish together as a team and community.”

Strathcona Beer Company’s Primo Double IPA is a limited release and will be available exclusively for tasting and purchase in the brewery’s tasting room (895 East Hastings St.) starting on Friday, November 17th.  An official anniversary party for customers will take place on that same date from 6pm to 11pm with music by special guest DJ Flipout.
