Learn practical tips on how to brew better coffee at home in this hands-on 2 hour course!

Cost: $55 per person

Do you want to learn how to get the most out of your french press? Or do you have a pour-over (e.g. Chemex) sitting in your cabinet but never really learned how to use it? Maybe a friend has told you about the AeroPress but you don't know what the hype is all about?

In this two hour course, we'll dive into the science behind coffee brewing and tackle three different brewing methods with practical tips that you can take home with you!

This course will focus on brewing with:

  • French Press
  • Pour-Over (Chemex, Melita, V60, etc.)
  • AeroPress

In this experience, you'll learn about:

  • The science behind coffee brewing including grind size, amount of coffee, blooming, water temperature, and more
  • How different brewing methods affect the flavor of the coffee
  • Practical tips vs. myths you may have heard about coffee brewing

Of course, it won't be all talk! We'll have a chance to actually brew coffee with our three different methods. You'll be led by our coffee expert and head roaster, Scott, and we'll guide you through noticing different flavors and techniques.

Even if you use a different brew method at home, we're sure that the tips and knowledge gained in this course will further you on your way to a tastier cup in the morning! Geared towards all experience levels, no prior coffee knowledge is necessary and we're sure even an expert will learn something new during this class.

Note: Brewing espresso is a whole different beast, thus this course is not designed to teach you everything you need to know for pulling a shot. We will discuss other brewing methods including espresso at the end of the class.

Refund policy: refunds and transfers are allowed up to 10 days prior to the event. Any requests after this date are handled on a case-by-case basis.

Explore the world of coffee tasting in this 2 hour experience at the Bivouac Coffee Tasting Room!

Cost: $45 per person

Ever wanted to learn more about tasting different coffees? How about the difference between Central American, South American, and African coffees? What's the truth about light roasts vs dark roasts?

In this experience, you'll learn about:

  • Where coffee comes from (hint, it's the seed of a fruit!), and how the country of origin, elevation, and growing method affect flavor
  • How to read all the different descriptors that might be on a bag of coffee (roast, origin, elevation, processing, etc)
  • How the brewing method can impact different flavors
  • Are the various tasting notes on a bag (e.g. "strawberry") really accurate?

Of course, it won't be all talk! You'll have a chance to taste four different origins of coffee, brewed by our coffee expert and head roaster, Scott. We'll guide you through noticing different flavors, and help you discover what you like the most!

Geared towards all experience levels, no prior coffee knowledge is necessary and we're sure even a bean expert will learn something new during this class.

Refund policy: refunds and transfers are allowed up to 10 days prior to the event. Any requests after this date are handled on a case-by-case basis.
