Home Barista Basics with John Curry - 2 hours - $45
Our baristas make it look easy, but the truth is that creating an espresso drink is a fairly complex process. In our Home Barista Basics class, you will learn fundamental barista skills, include grinding, dosing, and tamping, the basic principles of espresso extraction, and introduction to milk steaming. This class will give you the opportunity to test your new skills on a Rocket espresso machine.
Brewing Methods with John Curry - 90 minutes $35 (Class available on January 20th, from 1-2:30pm / Please purchase tickets under our Coffee Classes shopping section.)
Would you like to learn how to make great coffee at home? How about experiment with a brewing method you have never tried.
Come to our fun Brewing Methods Class, where we will cover not only grind, ratios, and extractions, but also put them to the test using various brewing methods, such as the Chemex, Hario V60, Aeropress, Clever Dripper, French press, and maybe even a siphon brewer.
You will be able to try your hand at various brewing methods of your choice and taste the differences in the results.
Seed to Cup with John Curry - 90 minutes - $25
This class offers a comprehensive overview of coffee from farm to cup, concentrating on one of the most sustainable coffee farms in the world, the Selva Negra Estate in Matagalpa, Nicaragua. First, we will cover growing, harvesting, and processing the coffee at the farm. From there, we will look at what happens to the coffee upon arrival into the US, the roasting process and what that does to the coffee. Finally, we will enjoy a coffee tasting.
