The coffee lab will begin with a glimpse into the coffee farmer's journey from crop to cup (i.e. the coffee tree, harvesting the fruit, and its processing) in a short film that will cover coffee history and the legendary goat that discovered coffee in Ethiopia. Next, we'll roast some coffee together, discovering the importance and impact 'roasting' has on the quality of the coffee and what differentiates specialty coffee. We will then stir it up with a "cupping" session, which is the standard method of taste-assessing single-origin coffees from different regions. This will be a blind coffee tasting that will be paired with bites/snacks that enhance the notes of the coffee. Afterwards, I will turn everyone into expert brewers by preparing coffee using three or four different methods of brewing utilizing different coffee tools (i.e. V60, Chemex, Aeropress, Syphon, cold brewer, etc). Here, you will see how the same blend of coffee can taste so different just by selection of brewing method. Everyone will leave with a sample of Catalina Island Roast Coffee to try at home.
Il tuo host
A 4-star restaurant accountant and "coffee" magazine publisher, I found a new appreciation for coffee when I visited Hawaiian coffee farms and observed the process from harvest to roast. No longer was coffee just a caffeine jolt to get me functioning in the morning, but I think of it as a labor of love, savor each sip and imagine its path from crop to cup. Transitioning to a roaster on Catalina Island was second nature as I had been roasting coffee at home for over 10 years. Watching the beans from first crack and up to the second crack, then tasting it...truly a priceless pleasure to share.
