Virtual Coffee Tasting Workshop
Saturday September 25, 2021 @ 10:30am on ZOOM
Another free, PANE-sponsored event
In this virtual, hands-on workshop, we will explore that glorious elixir, coffee. The plan is to sample specific contrasting flavors of coffee and share our experiences --- pro and con --- over Zoom. We will talk about bean selection, roasting, storage, brewing options, etc. You are welcome (read: encouraged) to use descriptive language and take notes for future reference.
Our workshop guide will be the avid mixologist and southern charmer, Derrick Peavy, who led the PANE Holiday Cocktail Making Workshop. Derrick has put together a list of supplies below here.
Join the DIY fun or simply watch and learn. All are welcome.
What You Will Need
One bag of Dancing Goats Coasta Rica LaMinita Tarrazu
Your favorite local coffee(s)
Orange and lemon zest simple syrups (instructions below)
You are welcome to substitute or eliminate as taste and availability determine.
You will ideally have the following available during the workshop:
Your favorite brewing device (French press, Clover, percolator, etc.)
Cups, spoons & water as needed for your brewing set
Paper and pen (or digital equivalent) to take notes on tastes and smells for future reference
You might find it helpful to have more than one means of brewing if only to compare how the brewing process affects the coffee tasting experience.
