COLUMBUS, Ohio – Looking to up your coffee game? Try your hand at coffee roasting at Crimson Cup’s Roasting Fundamentals class! The Oct. 15 class takes place from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Crimson Cup Innovation Lab, 700 Alum Creek, just south of Bexley.
The only SCA Premier Training Campus in Ohio, the Crimson Cup Innovation Lab offers a space for consumers and coffee professionals to learn about awesome coffee. Courses cover everything from coffee origins to roast level, grind, brewing techniques, drink preparation and more.
“Our consumer classes are perfect for those who want to become coffee connoisseurs, roast their own coffee, or even just to order their favorite cup with confidence at any coffee shop,” said Founder and President Greg Ubert.
“Today, coffees are becoming like fine wines, with infinite varieties that come from specific regions of the world,” he added. “Country of origin, growing conditions, processing, roasting and brewing methods affect flavor and enjoyment.”
Roasting Fundamentals takes place Wednesday, October 15, from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Designed for home roasters and craft beverage enthusiasts, this class allows students to examine green coffee and dive into basics of coffee roasting.
Participants will roast their own coffee on sample and production roasters. Instructors will discuss basic organic chemistry to describe the roasting curve. Each participant will leave with a bag of coffee they have roasted.
The Roasting Fundamentals class costs $75. The class can accommodate up to five students. Register online for Roasting Fundamentals.
Crimson Cup will announce its winter schedule of consumer courses later this fall.
