Upcoming Events

Event Name Date Time Location Details
Alchemy of Brewing – Coffee Workshop Sat. November 17th 10:00am-12:00pm 2 Matilda St. (in our cafe) The focus of this class is the science behind brewing coffee, starting with the fundamental principles of extraction and ending in a deeper exploration into the application of these principles. In this session we also demonstrate a variety of popular brewing methods and equipment while examining their pros and cons.
Cupping & Tasting – Coffee Workshop Sat. December 1st 10:00am-12:00pm 2 Matilda St. (in our cafe) 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 one, learning to chart their acidity, body and complexity, as well as how to differentiate among the three main growing regions.
