In this workshop we also demonstrate a variety of popular brewing methods and equipment while examining their pros and cons.
|Cupping & Tasting
||Sat. Nov 25, 2017
||This class is akin to a wine tasting but for coffee! We start by explaining how a coffee’s value and grade is determined, and what takes place inside typical coffee cupping rooms. Then we brew, taste and analyze three different fresh-roasted coffees, making notes on each coffee, learning to chart their acidity, body and complexity, as well as how to differentiate amoung the three main growing regions.
