San Jose’s first Irish Coffee competition set

What makes a great Irish coffee?
We’ll find out this week when  Five Points , the sister bar to the venerable O’Flaherty’s Irish Pub, hosts San Jose’s first Irish Coffee competition.
Five local coffee companies — Chromatic Coffee, Academic Coffee, Forager Coffee, Kick Back Coffee Roasters and Roy’s Station Coffee & Teas — will square off from 8 to 10 p.m. Wednesday, March 14.
The coffee itself (and any frou-frou touches) are likely to be the key to success as all competitors will be using sponsor Jameson Caskmates’ whiskey.
The winner’s Irish Coffee recipe will then be re-created on St. Patrick’s Day this Saturday for Five Points customers.
Members of the public are welcome to watch the competition, but here’s the rub: No Irish coffee will be served that night. While the top recipe is being determined, you’ll have to stay in the mood with whiskey or maybe some Bailey’s Irish Cream.
Details: Five Points is at 169 W. Santa Clara St.; www.fivepointssj.com.
