What a weekend it’s been! Hidden within a quiet housing estate, Weekend Worker and Everyday Canoe had its first pop-up retail and handbrewed coffee experience at the lovely Maple & Market. Look at all them pastries!
The idea was born out of a love for many things. Coffee, what’s made by hand, earthy wares and to share a conversation with strangers. When Chloe from the ceramic collective Weekend Worker told me about this, my head was like, “Yes!” and my hands were itching to make new wares as well.
We had 4 bar seats and 4 unique platters pairing ceramics and wood. People would sit in front of the set they preferred, and make themselves comfy as Chloe told them a little more about the beans she had to offer.
Upon selecting the type of bean, each of which came with a different method of brewing to best bring out their natural flavours, they were ground. The aroma that filled the cafe was soooo comforting.
Here’s Chloe working her magic with the aeropress.
Much like wine pairing, the presentation of the platter was key to the sensorial experience of smell, taste and sight. Blueberries were offered for their subtle sweet flavour, which really brought out a different dimension to the coffee methinks!
Thank you to all for dropping by to accompany us in the Coffee x Clay x Wood experience. Till next time!
