March Brew Class - AeroPress

The AeroPress is like the saxophone: easy to learn, hard to master. Many folks new to coffee (and quite a few seasoned pros) will find themselves spending way too much time looking up AeroPress recipes online. The quest for the perfect AeroPress recipe is never ending, but in this class we're making it simple: we will brew using the 2018 World AeroPress Championship recipe. Come on down and brew like a champ!

May Brew Class - Water for Coffee

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 class will be primarily focused on tasting rather than brewing.

August Cupping - SOLD OUT

Join us on the first Saturday of the month for a coffee cupping! This is an opportunity for you to taste a few of our coffees, learn about their origins, and experience how industry professionals create flavor profiles.

This month we'll be tasting our current Central and South American offerings. We have just recently broken into fresh crop Colombian and Guatemalan coffees. Both of these coffees work well as medium roasts with nice caramelization and sugar development. However, each develops a different kind of sweetness, and each has its own fruit undertones.

To provide a positive experience for our guests, we will limit the capacity of the cupping to 20 people. Register now!

July Brew Class - SOLD OUT

Our brew classes are geared toward helping you brew better coffee. We cover a wide range of brew methods and techniques with the intent of making participants aware of best practices. Each class has a specific focus, but we welcome all of your questions.

Summer time = makin’ cold brew. In this class, we’ll show you how to start and finish your cold brew. Then we’ll taste a wide range of cold brewed coffees so you can experience what’s good about cold brew. We'll talk about brew times, water chemistry, hot blooming, and anything else you want to know. It's recommended you eat before this class because cold brew contains more caffeine than your typical hot cup of coffee. This class will have extra emphasis on tasting results rather than brewing since the brew process is so time consuming.

The cost of this class is $10 a person and seating is limited, so secure your spot now!
