2017 South End Art Hop

We are very excited to participate in the 2017 South End Art Hop, a three-day celebration of the arts and culture in our community taking place September 8-10th. The Art Hop attracts over 30,000 visitors from across the northeast and Canada to view hundreds of exhibits, sculpture, fashion shows, music, live demos, artist markets, juried show, Kids Hop and much more! 

There are many reason why we love the Art Hop & the South End, but this year is extra special: 

  • This weekend, Brio is celebrating our 3rd Birthday!  Couldn't think of a sweeter way to party in the neighborhood and ring in our 4th year. 
  • This marks the 25th year of the Art Hop. It's an amazing event put on by the South End Business & Arts Association (for a full schedule of the fun festivities, see here)
  • We are thrilled to have our friend and illustrator extraordinaire, Michael Balzano, & his Bunny at the roastery all weekend long. 
  • In tandem with celebrating Brio's and the Art Hop birthday, we are excited to launch our new bottled cold coffees. Brio Cold is a collection of single origin coffees brewed using a proprietary process that preserves the vibrant flavors and aromas endemic to each coffee. This is cold coffee, as we reimagine it.

1 PM & 2 PM- Roast Demo with Roaster Nate - See how coffee is roasted up close, next to the roaster.  Nate will show you how we roast our coffees and some of the behind the scenes of our equipment, the tools we use for roasting and the ways we develop our roast profiles to highlight the unique aspects of every coffee we bring in through our door. 
4 PM - Espresso Play Time!  Come and have Magda show you around a commercial espresso machine. Pull some espresso shots together, steam some milk, and hey, maybe pour that heart you've been practicing at home. Magda can give you some tips and demo how to make various espresso beverages. You'll see, commercial machines are a thing of beauty and nothing to be intimated by.
