Making a "Good" Cup of Coffee: Brewing and Sustainability Workshop
When it comes to coffee, the word "good" has two meanings.
The first is the one we’re most familiar with - taste. The second is about doing good when buying and drinking coffee. This exclusive two-part class will cover both aspects of a “good” coffee.
Did you know that the water you use to brew your coffee can affect how it tastes? In the first half of the class, we’ll have a brewing and tasting workshop where you’ll pick up tips on making and enjoying a better cup of coffee, and as special guests of MIZUcafe produced by Cleansui, we'll explore in detail the impact that our water can make on how our coffee tastes.
In the second half, we’ll discuss sustainability in the coffee industry, conscious consumerism, and the impact that your choices as a coffee drinker can make.
You’ll leave the class empowered to be a more conscious coffee drinker, ready to enjoy the best coffee while doing good for the environment and coffee producers at the same time!
