Charlene has been running a filter brewing class since 2011 and is our WAY world Aeropress and Belgium Brewerscup Champion. We love filter coffee and we love brewing it at home. It’s really easy to get started, and learning a few skills and some background knowledge will go a long way towards improving the quality of your coffee. You can expect to have a fun, informative, hands-on couple of hours, and to taste a lot of delicious coffee along the WAY.
At the beginning of this class, you’ll learn a little bit about the history of coffee production and preparation, as well as some of the theory behind coffee extraction! We will then get down to coffee brewing – Charlene will show you how to brew with three different devices: Plunger, Aeropress and Pour Over.
We’ll explore and taste the effect of different variables on your coffee brewing – namely agitation, contact time and grind setting. By understanding these variables, you’ll be well equipped to troubleshoot any issues you might run into in the future. Finally, we’ll go hands-on with the devices and brew up some coffee to finish the class!
