Edmonton Elites Get Crazy for Coffee Cocktails at Transcend

The Edmonton Elites descended on the newly-opened Jasper Ave location of Transcend Coffee for an elite evening of coffee, coffee cocktails, prizes, a little java widsom, and the hottest South American style eats!

Coffee connoisseur Josh got the party going by adding some delectable liqueurs to Transcend's signature roast.

James ran us through a quick coffee-tasting, where he taught us a little bit about where those magical beans come from, and we tasted a few different roasting methods. Kristin K had fun learning the "little facts – like coffee beans actually come from the seeds of cherries!"

And the perfect pairing with the tasty Transcend roast was a sneak-preview of their menu! Quoc C was a fan of every dish, even the ones he couldn't pronounce. "I can tell you they all had really good flavours, particularly the smoking hot salsa verde!" And Kristin K loved the "truly delectable corn tortilla with shredded pork, soft crumbled cheese, and fresh cilantro." Delectable indeed!

With bellies full of a red-seal meal and hot coffee-liqueur combos, the Edmonton Elites partied the night away. Lea A has huge praise for the Transcend staff, who are "so welcoming, friendly and knowledgeable about their work and product." And Aditya R left inspired to try to "master my tastebuds and differentiate between sour and bitter." Taste on!

Thanks to the most awesome staff at Transcend for sharing their eats, treats, and knowledge with us. Major shout out to Dave Clark and Targa Communications for the sweet photos of the night. Don't forget to check out reviews of the Elite Event, and make sure to add your own, too!

Thanks for an energetic and excellent evening, Edmonton Elites! I'll see you at the next party, and SYOY!
