Next Week: Coffee-Pairing Dinner


We’re all familiar with beer- or wine-pairing dinners. But when was the last time you went to a coffee-pairing dinner? Caffeine fiends should gear up for next week’s coffee-pairing dinner at Four Seasons Resort Scottsdale at Troon North’s lovely Talavera restaurant. On Oct. 28, the Four Seasons’ Executive Chef Mel Mecinas and Executive Sous Chef Jesse Hansen will host Perk, a four-course dinner that is paired with coffee from local coffee hot spot, Press Coffee. Press Coffee will provide all coffees, grinding everything fresh for both the drinks and, as you can see from the menu listed below, to be used in the savory courses. During their meal, all diners will receive tableside, siphon-brewed coffee, using Press Coffee’s Ethiopian “Amaro Gayo.”
