Date: January 30, 2019
Time: 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.
Location: Monogram Coffee Fifth Avenue Place, 420 2 St SW, Calgary
Explore the wonderful world of coffee.
To start, participants will learn the process of “cupping”, a unique industry standard way of evaluating coffee. Jeremy will lead you through a guided tasting by comparing two very different coffees side by side and discussing the differences in acidity, sweetness, aroma, body and ﬂavour. Discover the reasons why each coffee tastes the way it does by learning about the variables that inﬂuence taste, from the terroir, agriculture, processing, shipping, roasting and brewing.
After the tasting session, Jeremy will guide you through a step-by-step process on manually brewing exceptional coffee. Get hands on and explore the science behind extracting coffee, and learn how to control and tweak all the variables associated with brewing to optimize the coffee to your personal tastes. Experiment with new brew methods and learn how to re-vitalize old favourites.
