Brewing Basics

Brewing Basics is the first in a series of workshops we've created especially for coffee lovers. In this two-hour class, we’ll explore essentials for brewing great coffee at home. We'll discuss how to determine a coffee-brewing recipe, identify the appropriate grind size, and establish the importance of brewing time. Guided coffee tastings will reinforce key brewing principles; instructors will demonstrate techniques and best practices for pourover brewing. Workshop participants take home a $15 web store voucher, a Counter Culture ceramic pourover brewer, and a packet of filters.

Who should take this class: Anyone interested in perfecting their coffee brewing technique.

Prerequisites: None.

Two-hour workshop: $75
