POSTPONED - Online Event - Sensory Series 101 - March 18th
Mar. 13, 2020
UPDATE: Sorry Everyone! We have to postpone this event. Stay tuned. We are looking to have something planned for the week of March 23rd.
Join us on March 18th for the first in a series of informative events where we will explore how to use your senses to get the most out tasting coffee.
In this class, we will review the SCA (Specialty Coffee Association's) taster's wheel. Also, we will teach you about flavor/aroma references.
This is an online event so you don't need to leave the comfort of your own digital screen.
No need to sign up. Just go to our Facebook page and look for the live stream. You don't have to have a Facebook account to watch. The video will be posted after the live broadcast for you to watch at your own convenience.
So how are we all going to reference flavors without everyone being in the same room? Easy. Here's a few items to have on hand if you want to taste along with us. We'll refer to them as flavors that you experience in coffee. Some might seem kind of weird but it will all make sense later.
- Grape Nuts cereal, ground
- Papery water - submerge 15 paper (not bamboo) coffee filters, in boiling water and allow to soak for at least 12 hours. Remove the filters and save the water as your flavor/aroma reference
- Guinness Extra Stout beer
- Hershey's cocoa powder, unsweetened
