We can remember when the only decision we needed to make about coffee was: regular or decaf? Nowadays, you can choose from a delightful spectrum of origins, varieties and roasting styles. But how can you know what to look for in cup of joe, and how to choose which ones to buy? Join one of Driftaway’s coffee educators for this 30 minute online class where you’ll discover secrets to tasting and describing coffee just like the experts do.
Similar to wine or beer, coffee has specific characteristics that anyone can learn to identify, so this class is an equally exciting gift for those who love coffee or those who are coffee-curious - and it’s especially fun with a team or with prospects. You’ll be working with the Coffee Kit that comes with your purchase of this class: it includes five hand-selected coffees from around the world, sampling cups, tasting forms, and a detailed flavor wheel. The coffees aren’t labeled with origin info or tasting notes, so you’re able to enjoy the sensory experience without distraction.
Your educator will introduce you to the side-by-side cupping technique that pros use to evaluate brews, and lead you through steeping the five coffees in your cups (no coffee maker required!). You’ll have time to identify and discuss specific aspects of a coffee’s fragrance, body and flavor, like dark chocolate, blackberry and caramel. At the very end is the big reveal, when your educator shares the origin and profile of each sample, and you find out how closely your own experience matches Driftaway’s. You’ll leave this class appreciating coffee in a whole new way, with the know-how to confidently choose coffees that will make every sip more enjoyable than ever.
