Duration 3 hours
Venue Argo on the Parade

In this course participants will delve into the science of espresso extraction and filter coffee brewing. We will cover the mechanisms and variables of extraction, explore the finer points of dialling-in coffees (including equipment adjustment), taste and learn to recognise examples of under and over extraction, discuss the effects of water chemistry and roast degree on extraction, and use a refractometer to apply objective measurements when attempting to realise the flavour potential of any coffee (with any brewing method). Along with theory discussion there will be practical demonstrations and hand-on experience using state of the art equipment.

This course is well suited to both coffee professionals wanting to more deeply understand their craft and home baristas wanting to build on their coffee knowledge - to make better espresso and filter coffee either behind the bar or in the kitchen! The course will be conducted on a Victoria Arduino Black Eagle Gravimetric and Alpha Dominche Steampunk, with VA Mythos One and Mahlkönig EK43 grinders.

If you have any questions regarding the course or are interested in one-on-one tuition or coaching for competition please email Adam at adam@monasterycoffee.com.au :)

Happy learning!

We are a small batch roaster of traceable coffees based in Adelaide, South Australia.

To us 'traceable' designates two key things - quality and provenance; we only roast coffees of the highest quality and coffees that are traded in a traceable and sustainable manner. We feel as the roaster it is our role to firstly - roast only to preserve and highlight the individual qualities inherent in each coffee due to the meticulous work of the producers, and secondly - to make sure you know who those producers are and where your coffee came from.

We believe in an economically sustainable supply chain, wherin everybody from the consumer to the farmer is empowered. To that end we only roast coffees that are sourced in an ethical, transparent and responsible manner. We go to lengths to ensure all players in the supply chain are remunerated fairly and have access to the same knowledge - most pertinently those in producing countries, who are currently benefiting the least from trade and simultaneously bearing the most risk.

Together we can change that.

If you have any questions about our roasting or sourcing please don't hesitate to email us at:  hello@monasterycoffee.com.au
