Alserkal Avenue, which is Dubai’s arts destination is all set to present its third annual summer programme, under the theme ‘Sensing Memory’. With the help of a series of workshops, lectures, performances, and seminars draws from the UAE’s creative community and beyond to explore the connection between the senses and personal and collective memories.
All those who enjoy their daily brew, must visit the event that is going to take place at the Nightjar Coffee Roastery in Alserkal Avenue. This event offers a rare chance to discover more about the drink, taking participants through the tradition and production of coffee, from cultivation to roasting. Visitors will get to see coffee in various stages of production, using its smell, feel, and taste to access each bean’s history and place in modern society.
Along with the way society evolves, we see changes in food and beverages. The world of designer coffee is a major indicator of this phenomenon. In the Night Jar (which is the Avenue’s roastery, eatery and perfect spot to end a walk-around), visitors can also learn about the provenance of the food and thank the 9th century Ethiopian who first discovered coffee beans.
They are artisanal coffee roasters, NightJar is a group of eclectic and passionate specialty coffee professionals from around the world. Their mission is to ensure ‘make it good’, from their relationships with the farmers at origin, to the final cup of brew. They source green coffee direct from selected single origin farms with micro and nano-lots. They are committed to quality, provenance, sustainability, freshness and fair relationships with the growers; ensuring the farmers get paid a good price for a good product and that the relationships are long term and not just seasonal.
The roastery and eatery is located in the heart of Dubai’s creative hub, Alserkal Avenue Arts & Culture District, Nightjar Coffee is a beacon and destination that cannot be missed. The Roastery and Eatery offers a unique combination of cutting edge coffee roasting, outstanding food and the best cup of espresso and filter options in Dubai. The team have also been perfecting Cold Brew and Nitro offering. One can stop in and see the world of Nightjar.
