  • Taste the rare treat of delicious Cascara, a tea made from coffee cherries

Enjoy coffee brewed by barista Donna while examining several popular home-roasting methods, some using simple tools easily found in many homes. This roasting class is great for beginners, and you can ask questions on any aspect of coffee. Sharpen your senses as green coffee beans are placed in an open roaster and you observe first-hand the sights, sounds, and aromas as beans transform from green to brown. The demonstration brings the roasting process to life and prepares you for the next segment. Here, your guide will explain how to use a handheld roaster over an open-flame stove. Now you take charge as the coffee maestro by pre-heating your ceramic roaster, adding green beans, and applying a gentle motion while watching the progress of your roast develop to the level you desire. When your session ends you will leave as an accomplished coffee roaster with your personally roasted beans plus a bag of green beans to roast at home. We have over 150 5-star reviews on other venues.
