What can I expect in a coffee brewing class?
Well – I’m so glad you asked.
This class is approximately an hour and fifteen minutes long (depending on discussion time). We start off the class talking about the background of coffee and how it is grown, processed and sourced and why it’s important to know where your coffee comes from. We will also discuss some of the major coffee processing methods and how that affects the flavor.
The second part of the class, we’ll get into the actual brewing methods. We talk about the importance of grinding your beans correctly and what kinds of grinders are available. We will demonstrate several brewing methods that may vary depending on what equipment is available at the time. Some of the brewing methods that we’ve done in the past include the Toddy cold brewer, the french press, Chemex, Hario V60 pour over, siphon pot and aeropress.
At the end of the class, we hope that you’ll be more confident brewing great coffee at home in any of a number of brewing methods. We don’t do espresso at this particular class. Espresso constitutes an entire class in itself. Everything in this particular coffee brewing class is geared towards other home brewing methods.
Come join us! We’re sure you’ll be glad you did.
