During the week, our Holborn Coffeebar is bursting at the seams serving great coffee to thirsty workers in The City. Over the quieter weekends we will be opening our doors to inquisitive coffee lovers, running both our Espresso Technique Masterclass and our incredibly popular Home Brewing Masterclass.

Over the course of this 2.5 hour session, we'll cover some of the basic processes involved in taking a ripe coffee cherry growing in the Tropics, and turning it into the wonderful beverage so many of us enjoy each day. We'll also share some insider tips on how to buy better coffee – from decoding coffee bag label information to understanding just how important the quality of the beans you buy really is. Identifying that it's not only the coffee itself that makes the difference in the cup, the focus will switch to water quality, filtration, and the all important equipment: grinders, scales and brewers.

After the theory it’s time to get hands-on as we share with you just how easy it can be to make great tasting coffee, by focusing on excellent ingredients and a simple recipe. We'll be showcasing three different brewers, covering a wide range of brewing styles including the French Press, the V60 Pourover and the Aeropress.

With just six guests per session, and an in-class discount of 10% on any coffee or brewers purchased, this session is an eye-opening, educational and delicious way to spend a weekend morning.  Aside from a more in depth understanding and greater appreciation of delicious brewed coffee, attendees will also go home with a 250g bag of freshly roasted Workshop Coffee, a set of brewing recipe instruction cards to help create that perfect cup at home and will qualify for an exclusive offer for our coffee subscription service.
