Blog | Plants and Pour Overs 2021

Category: Events

Published: March 8, 2021

This Women’s History Month, Coffee Project New York is showcasing various single origin coffees by pairing its pour over with a plant that complements its tasting profile. Our baristas will explain how these two work together while the pour over is prepared; the customer will walk away with their coffee, their plant, and a better understanding of how caring for plants can benefit their mental health.

This event is meant as a collaboration between two women-owned small businesses: Coffee Project NY and Stolen Magnolia. In addition to highlighting these businesses, we want to raise awareness on mental health—disorders such as depression and anxiety are more common among women than men. Particularly, we want to focus on how caring for plants can be therapeutic and improve quality of life, especially for women. A percentage of the proceeds will be donated to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).

We have three plant and coffee pairings available on the weekend of March 20-21, 2021 in-store as supplies last.

Bromeliad + Colombia Eduviges Panche (Women Producers)

This plant is native to the same Andean mountains as our Colombia Eduviges Panche. Like our coffee, the Bromeliad starts off heavy and earthy, but finishes with a burst of brightness.

Burro’s Tail Succulent + Coffee Project NY Mexico La Joya Lot 22C

Native to the Mexican desert, the Burro’s Tail succulent flares out with radial symmetry – pairing with our Mexico La Joya will transport you straight to sunny weather.

ZZ Plant + Coffee Project NY Ethiopia Jigesa, Natural Process

Native to the same tropical regions of Eastern Africa that are suitable for coffee farming, the ZZ Plant’s shiny, vivid leaves are as rich in appearance as our syrupy Ethiopia Jigesa.
