HOW ROAST DETERMINES FLAVOR • SATURDAY, AUGUST 20, 11AM • REGISTER

Learn how important the roast level can be in your home-brewed coffee. Different roast levels affect the flavor of coffee and can develop certain characteristics of the bean in different ways. You’ll learn the meaning of notable chemical reactions that roasting initiates and the effects of those reactions on elements like caffeine content and flavor.

ESPRESSO 101 • SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 10, 11AM • REGISTER

Want to taste better results from your home espresso machine? Or maybe you’re interested in what we do behind the bar. No matter what your interest or experience is, this class will teach & reinforce the techniques of properly brewing, serving, & enjoying espresso. From grind to dose to distribution to tamp to brew, we’ll cover what you need to know to pull delicious shots.

MILK STEAMING & LATTE ART • SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 24, 11AM • REGISTER

Your local barista may make pouring a beautiful rosetta seem magically effortless, but what does it really take? Join us to learn the science & art behind steaming & pouring sweet, glossy, micro- foamed milk. We’ll demonstrate the difference between various milks & temperatures, study a bit of milk chemistry, then try our hand at steaming, pouring & latte art.
