Nothing's better than the silky, illuminating flavors of good espresso. Pulling a shot that balances all those flavors is not as easy as it looks though. With a bit of guidance and a decent espresso machine, it is a craft that home brewers and newer coffee professionals can perfect! Espresso 101 offers a workshop for attendees to learn and to stretch the basics of dosing, tamping, and extracting.
Each student will have time on the espresso machine with the goal of pulling a perfect shot of espresso by the end of the class. Students will also learn the basics of proper milk steaming and basic latte art designs as well as have an opportunity to practice those designs. This class is hands-on practice for both steaming milk and pouring latte art; come ready to learn!
