Whether you're looking to get into home roasting, or you simply want to understand what happens to the beans before they reach your cup, this is the class for you. We'll taste coffees with varying roast profiles, to understand how temperature and time affect the beans. Head Roaster, Albert Macso, will fire up the roaster so we can follow the process from green to brown bean. Light refreshments will be served. Participants will leave with a bag of the beans roasted in class and a better grasp of all that goes into making coffee delicious.
Brewing a good cup of coffee shouldn't be difficult. A focus on four main variables will generally ensure a positive result (coffee, water, ratio, time). We will discuss each of the variables and demonstrate brewing techniques for pour-over, French press, drip and Aeropress. We will sample properly brewed coffee, and we'll get a little taste of some not-so-properly brewed coffee (for perspective). Light snacks will also be served. Participants will leave the class with a better understanding of how to brew a great cup of coffee at home.
