Cup Coffees from around the world - a perfect experience for those who love coffee.
We recommend this course as the perfect accompaniment to our Home Barista Essentials. Both courses run on the same day, with a break in between, making it the perfect coffee lovers' day.
During this course we will use a well established method of cupping, which uses a very precise ratio of coffee to temperature controlled water. Whilst we ‘cup’ the coffees, we will highlight how processing, origin and roast will affect the flavour. We will also go through how to 'taste' each coffee and help you to develop skills you can take away with you, so that you can cup your own coffee at home.
We limit our session to 6 people to maximise the learning potential and we have the flexibility to run these courses mid-week, most weeks.
Bring a few friends along for a few hours, relax, try something different and cup lots of lovely coffees.
This course runs at the following times:
Weekdays - Usually a Wednesday or Thursday from 1.30pm until 3pm
NB. We do not run this course on Saturdays and Sundays
All vouchers are non-refundable.

Wonderful course full of all you could want to know about coffee from Bush to cup. The tasting was really educational and exactly what I wanted. Would love a booklet on it as will forget all the information that I have been given. A Brilliant afternoon.
Spent a couple of hours with Stuart learning loads about species, origin, production method and roast profile. Sampled a range of ten different coffees and helped train my palate to focus on some of the subtle, and not so subtle, differences. Very enjoyable and worthwhile. I left with a small purchase of 500g of Kenyan AA beans. I now know this is clearly not enough, so I'll be back soon!!!
Try a whole lot of coffee, demonstrating the difference between species, roasts, washing technique and regions. Learned about how to tell explore the flavor profiles and noses of different coffees. A lot of fun and well worth doing.
