Session 1 Coffee Fundamentals
Roasting To Tasting In this workshop we explore the fundamentals of coffee. You learn where and how coffee plants grow and how beans are processed. We roast a green coffee sample and demonstrate to you how to roast coffee at home yourself. Afterwards we focus on the sensory aspect of coffee and we taste and discuss the difference between various coffees in what’s called a “cupping“ – a professional coffee tasting.
Session 2 The Perfect Espresso & Latte Art
A Barista Course This second workshop is all about the barista in you. We guide you through all the steps of working with a professional espresso machine and teach you how to properly steam milk in order to produce latte art. The group size will be smaller so that each one of you gets the opportunity to work with the machine her/himself. Get ready for your own yummy cappuccino! *Second session is a split: from 12:00 to 15:00 and from 16:00 to 19:00 > it’s working with the espresso machine and takes place in the café.
Session 3 The Comeback Of Filter Coffee
How Do Brew Great Coffee At Home Filter coffee was long perceived as a boring and dying way of preparing coffee. Something no one except your grandparents did. As most of us know by now, that couldn’t be further from the truth. Filter coffee is back and bigger than ever. In this session we explore how to grind coffee, the ideal brewing techniques, and what water to use for brewing. You get to brew different types of coffee yourself in the very best filter devices, such as Hario v60, the Chemex, the Aeropress, and the good old Press Pot.
