- Level of Instruction
- Ages 16+. Participants will need a coffee grinder.
Enjoying coffee with others has long been an important feature of Scandinavian culture. In this class, Hannah Garry, from Decorah-based coffee bar and roaster Impact Coffee, will take participants through the journey of a coffee bean from farm to roastery. Learn how different growing climates, processing methods, and roasting techniques affect the flavor of your favorite coffee beans. Participants will be mailed two samples of Impact Coffee from different origins to prepare during class using the pour-over method. We will compare tasting notes as a class and discuss the differences we taste in the two different coffees.
The listed class time includes one Zoom session on Saturday, September 25 (11:00am-Noon CT).
Supplies: A complete kit of supplies including two 8 oz. bags of coffee, a Hario dripper, filters, and a special treat from Vesterheim (a $45 value!) is included in the cost of enrollment. You'll also need a computer, laptop, or tablet with a camera and mic as well as a fast, reliable internet connection.
