We offer a 2 hour "Introduction to roasting" class. No, we do not roast you, but coffee! Have you ever wondered what makes coffee great?
In this hands-on 2 hour class, we will first we cup and taste 2 different types of coffees, prepared 2 different ways: espresso and V60, or V60 and French press. This will allow you to get acquainted with each method, and learn the differences between each and their impact on taste, clarity, drink strength.
Then we will learn about the origin of the coffees we have in our roastery, and learn about the different roast profiles (light, medium, dark), and the density of each bean type. We will learn what chemical reactions occur during the roasting, and their impact on the taste of the coffee beans, depending on the profile roast: acidity, sweetness, bitterness.
Finally, we will roast 2 batches of coffee, visualise the roast from start to finish, from green to roasted bean, and see how it develops from a grassy to nutty caramel flavour.
This whole 3 step process will last about 2h-2h30 hours.
