Tutorials at Workshop Coffee address all aspects of the process that turns a simple bag of beans into a drink of delicious sophistication. That means all are welcome to learn the tricks of the coffee trade, even if you’ve never made a cup of coffee in your life.
The folks over at Workshop Coffee teach students about all stages of the coffee life cycle, from field to cup. Their masterclasses cover everything from the methods used to pick and process the coffee cherries, to how the processed coffee beans are then transported, roasted and, eventually, ground and brewed.
As for brewing the perfect blend, the masterclass will guide participants through all the gritty details of the process. Not only does Workshop Coffee offer guidance on how to use a recipe and the ideal ratio of coffee to liquid, but those who partake will also learn about adjusting the grind profile, how to get the best flavour from the beans you use and how to tweak things for your own personal preferences.
While the espresso masterclass even includes instruction on how to prepare the milk, both courses teach amateur brewers about the many different ways to brew coffee and the different vessels used.
That said, James Bailey, Head of Quality at Workshop Coffee, insists that good coffee beans are a prerequisite for great coffee and no amount of skilled brewsmanship can make incredible coffee from low quality beans.
Meanwhile attendees, who are entitled to a 10% discount on all Workshop Coffee hardware and an exclusive offer on their coffee subscription service, will also take home a 250g (9 oz.) bag of freshly roasted coffee.
