This month we will cup four African coffees. Our Ethiopian Aramo has been a crowd favorite, and it's almost all gone, so we have a fresh new Yirgacheffe in house to replace it. Taste these two side by side along with two Burundi coffees. One Burundi is washed and one is natural, so it's a great opportunity to taste the impact processing has on flavor.

What's in Your Water?

In this class we look at the effect of coffee's primary ingredient: water. Water makes up 98% of your brewed coffee, so it is vitally important to the overall flavor. We explore the impact of water by brewing with a variety of store-bought bottled waters, Dallas tap water, and "bespoke" water created with a customized blend of minerals.

This month we would be remiss if we didn't share with you our Ethiopian Guji natural, which recently won in the 2018 Good Food Awards. Along with that, we'll also be cupping a washed Ethiopian Guji from the same farm. And since we have a washed and a natural from one country, we'll throw in a washed and a natural from another country. From Indonesia, we have a fully washed Sumatra, and the ever popular Bali natural. Come on down! It's gonna be great!
