Women Coffee Producer Program - TRY THE AMACA BEANS AT THE HOOD

Women Coffee Producer Program - TRY THE AMACA BEANS AT THE HOOD

This weekend in co-celebration with Women of Paris event at The Hood Paris, we are coincidentally serving Colombian coffee for our espresso-based drinks, produced by the Women Farmer Organisation AMACA in El Tambo, Cauca, Colombia, and roasted by THE BARN .

AMACA was founded in 1999, and is one of the only female driven coffee cooperatives in Colombia and Latin America. What these women have accomplished is important as they have created a safe space from gender and domestic violence for other women and families.

Last summer, Maria our chief barista visited the farm of the cooperative and the coffee was very good. She highly recommend to watch this video. Find out more at The Hood Paris tomorrow and talk to our friendly baristas !

Tell us where you have had your favourite #banhMi & Why !

Tell us where you have had your favourite #banhMi & Why !

Why Banh mi is our favourite all day snack at @thehoodparis !

1) You can have it any time of the day. @thehoodparis
we make them from 10H starting with two fried eggs for your morning breakfast, and then the meat and egg fritatas from lunch !

2) It's not about the bread. The bread as Khanh-Ly Huynh says " The bread is just here to moist the garnish with the sauce and hold all this (fillings) altogether"

3) Feel and enjoy the fillings instead . It's an explosion of your senses - spicy, sweet, savoury herby/ aromatic. .. it is a moment of rapture. " it's stuffed and flavourful.. not dry and anorexic looking " as our chef Khanh-Ly Huynh would say.

4) Do ask for Khanh-Ly Huynh 's created house made Sriracha sauce ( you read it here first, it's a tad spicy so we don't always put them on it ..)

5) Vegetarian options are available and we'll work on a vegan version soon (cc: Vihan Jain)

6) Yes we eat em' with our hands , ala street style !

7) we pair them with Beats and Beers (ask for a craft beer pairing at The Hood Paris), Vietnamese style !

Happy Lunar New Year from the Team
