TASTE x Go Get Em Tiger Coffee Issue Launch

On March 4, TASTE joined forces with Los Angeles coffee heroes Go Get Em Tiger for a party to launch our Coffee Issue at the company’s Highland Park location.

The Coffee Issue (read it all here), features a rich brew of stories about coffee’s unique place in the world we live. We wrote about the 10 big ideas in coffee today, the booming cold-brew marketplace, Gritty (the Philadelphia Flyers mascot and latte art inspiration), and how coffee is grown and sold in Ethiopia. And, of course, the story of Go Get Em Tiger’s special place in the the LA coffee universe.

The party, which featured a triangulation competition, was thrown in partnership with the cool people at Triple Beam Pizza, and Highland Park Wine—and eventually crowned the winner of the GGET Golden Palate. Check out the tongue trophy and other photos here.
