Music of Madison's Outdoor Festivals

During the summer of 1997, Studio Earth Remote Recording spent many hours recording as many performances as possible at Madison's outdoor festivals. After many frantic weeks of mixing and re-mixing and gathering imput from bands, the final selections were made. The result is "Under The Sun" a CD sampler that shows off many of the diverse sounds of Madison's music scene as presented publicly that year. Due to limitations of tape and schedules, some great performances were missed but this gives a nice snapshot.

Burundi Natural Gahahe

Colectivo
Size: 1 Pound
Price:
$14.50
[more info]
Burundi burst on to the specialty coffee scene in the late 2000s and has steadily gained fans for its washed and natural coffees. For those unfamiliar with naturals, the coffee cherries are harvested and dried like raisins, turning from deep red to purple to black. The cherries become hard and then are milled to strip the dried skin, pulp, and parchment shell all at the same time. Natural coffees typically exhibit an intense, fruit-forward flavor, with the dominant note in East African naturals being an unmistakable blueberry.

Gahahe is one of eight washing stations in Kayanza Province of northern Burundi that are owned and operated by the exporter Greenco. Colectivo visited several of these washing stations in June 2019and was very impressed with their quality standards for receiving cherries from small-scale producers. They produce both washed and natural lots, and we liked last year's Gahahe so much that we decided to offer it again. This year's lot features dried blueberry, dark chocolate, dried cranberry, and tangerine peel with a nice, silky body.

Gibraltar Beverage Glass

Libbey
Size: 12 Ounces
Price:
$3.35
[more info]
The Libbey 15238, a glass from the Gibraltar series, has a round top and octagonal bottom to add visual interest and provide a secure grip for staff and guests. This beverage glass has a 12-ounce capacity, making it ideal for serving water, soda, juice, and tea. The clarity of this glass will show off any drink you choose to serve in it, which makes it easier for servers to monitor drink levels and know when to offer a refill. It is also dishwasher-safe, making cleaning and maintenance simple.

The Libbey Gibraltar line features the company's DuraTuff treatment, a special heat process that makes the glass more durable and able to better resist breakage from both mechanical and thermal shock. In the event that the glass does break, the DuraTuff treatment offers another advantage: it will break into large pieces, rather than shattering like most tempered glass, which makes it safer to use and less likely to contaminate food or injure customers. The durability of these heat-treated glasses will help you spend less money replacing them and less time cleaning up shattered messes, saving on labor and product replacement costs.

These are un-used glasses from the cafe. If you ever order a small tea or cold brew or single latte, this is the cup it was served in.
