Have you ever read the tasting notes on a bag of coffee only to find that it tastes like…well…coffee? With a little practice, tasting coffees comparatively (tasting different coffees next to one another) it becomes much easier to pick out the distinctive traits of any coffee you taste. In this workshop, Wolf Marnell (Director of Coffee at Pavement Coffeehouse) will lead you through a simple comparative coffee tasting that you can do at home.
If you’d like to taste the same coffees along with Wolf, coffee sample kits will be available for pre-order on their website (https://pavementcoffeehouse.com/products/zone-3-coffee-tasting-kit
) between August 1–August 20.
You can also participate with any two coffees you want*, or just watch and learn without coffee and try your own tasting after.
*If you’d like to participate and taste along with the live workshop, give yourself plenty of time before the workshop to brew the coffees.
WHAT YOU’LL NEED:
Coffee sample kit from Pavement Coffeehouse. These are available for pre-order at pavementcoffeehouse.com. Order between August 1–August 20 or prepare any two coffees that you would like to compare. The more different they are from each other, the better.
A way to brew the coffee—a coffee maker, pourover device, french press, or really any way that you normally brew coffee at home.
2 mugs + some way of labeling the coffee mugs (dry- or wet- erase marker, tape with permanent marker, post-it note)
