Specialty Coffee Master Class
For those interested in an immersive, one-of-a-kind coffee experience, we offer an amazing master class of the coffee supply chain that doesn't require taking a step beyond the cafe. Here's what you can expect to experience during the class:
The class starts where coffee transforms from a seed into a fruit-bearing tree—the farm. Our cafe features a coffee thriving garden that is representative of a classic Rwandan coffee farm, where we'll explain the steps that go into coffee agronomy and harvesting. After you've learned about coffee agronomy, harvested ripe cherries, and tasted the sweet coffee fruit, you'll de-pulp your harvest and learn how it's processed in order to be ready for roasting.
Roasting and Cupping
Roasting is a delicate step in the production process, and requires immense attention to detail to elicit the best flavors from the beans. Our roast master will explain the process and how we create the perfect roast curve for each individual coffee we source. Then, you'll roast up your very own batch with guidance from our roasting experts. Lastly, we'll enjoy a coffee "cupping" (tasting) and, talk about what we look for when sourcing coffee and how different roast profiles impact taste.
Unlike wine, coffee can't be uncorked and enjoyed at the ready. The crucial last step is brewing, and it requires great care in order to bring forth the best flavors created during the growing, processing, and roasting production steps. Our expert baristas, who have worked in cafes as far as away as San Francisco, California, will talk about the technicalities of brewing coffee, what attributes they look for in the final cup, and guide you through pulling espresso shots, crafting latte art, and preparing coffee with different brewing methods.
