(AUSTIN, TX – Feb. 25, 2014) Casa Brasil Coffees, the Austin-based coffee company that sources, imports and roasts beans exclusively from artisanal growers in Brazil, will lead a series of cupping sessions and demonstrations during Central Market’s first-ever “Know Your Joe” coffee extravaganza, Feb. 26 – March 11. Casa Brasil founder Joel Shuler is one of the few coffee experts worldwide to earn both the Q Grader certification and the Port of Santos Cupping and Classification license. Shuler and his team will conduct two cupping classes with Central Market’s Cooking School – March 3 and March 7 in Forth Worth and Dallas respectively – and more than a dozen coffee demos at all eight Central Market locations in Texas (exception of Preston Road/Dallas).

Opened in 2005, Casa Brasil Coffees is the first United States coffee company to focus on directly trading and offering gourmet Brazilian beans from seed to cup. Shuler, fluent in Portuguese, regularly travels to Brazil to participate in everything from the harvest season to being part of the esteemed jury at the recent Cup of Excellence competition for Late Harvest naturals (January 2014). Shuler recently translated Pos-Colheita do Café, a textbook on post-harvest coffee technologies (English title: Handbook of Coffee Post-Harvest Technology: A Comprehensive Guide to the Processing, Drying, and Storage of Coffee). The coffee company was also a major participant in Central Market’s popular “Passaporte Brasil” celebration in April of 2013.
