CAPULUS ROASTERY RETURNS TO MICE
The team at Capulus Roastery are set to return for MICE2019.
We recently spoke to Jono East, founder and head roaster of Capulus, to find out a bit more about his roastery and what excites him about returning to MICE.
Q: How did Capulus Roastery first start out?
A: I started out with a little hot top hobby roaster. I was a barista for ten years, so roasting seemed like the logical next step. I volunteered at various roasters around Melbourne to hone my craft. The more I delved into roasting, the more passion I found for it.
Q: What excites you the most about returning to MICE?
A: Hopefully returning after a bit of a break will help to create a bit of buzz, and provide a good opportunity to help make a name for Capulus.
Q: What is your favourite origin?
A: Guatemala. Hands down. Heaps of varietals, consistency and amazing flavours. The naturals that have been coming out of Guatemala this year have been amazing!
Q: What is your favourite holiday destination when you’re not busy with roasting?
A: I haven’t taken a holiday since starting the business. But very soon I’ll be taking my first origin trip to Colombia!
Q: What is your all-time favourite coffee experience?
A: 2014 at the Auction Rooms. Candy man blend. Hands down the most memorable espresso I’ve ever had at a Melbourne café.
Jono and the rest of the Capulus team will be taking a slot on the brand-new MICE Espresso Bar next year! They will be operating the bar on Saturday 9 February, the final day of the show – if you haven’t bought your ticket already, click here to grab yours now!
