What you'll learn in this coffee class:

Go behind the scenes with Joe Coffee’s roasting team at our very own roasting facility and QC lab in Long Island City! Participants will learn the basics of the roasting process through a comparative roasting demonstration, examining various roast profiles of a single coffee to explore the variables that affect flavor. By tasting the coffees side by side, participants get a closer look at how roasting can highlight a coffee’s sweetness and complexity.

The class will include an overview of the cupping process, which is the industry standard method of tasting and evaluating coffee. In addition, this class also includes a tour of the roastery and a chance to explore each step of the production process.

Explorations in Roasting is a two and a half hour class. All materials are included in the price, and students will be able to take home coffee that is roasted during the class. No experience necessary.

Excellent! Roasted 3 batches with the small drums roaster, cupping the batches with the production batch, take all the roasted beans home to enjoy!

Very impressive. The instructor is very knowledgeable. He can tell if the farmer changed fertilizer or an insect nested on a branch.

Ed made this class so interesting and fun! We learned about roasting and tried our different roasts, and Ed shared interesting stories about his experiences in coffee roasting and sourcing. I really loved this class!
