Blue Bottle Coffee is our Williamsburg neighborhood coffee roastery.  We are blessed to have their expertise brought into our new space, The Homestead.  They will demystify the process of Pour Over Coffee Preparation!

Sunday, June 10, 1:00 to 2:00 pm

Preparing better coffee at home doesn’t require complicated machinery, but it does require skill and knowledge. Come learn basics of pour-over (drip) coffee technique in a class including a survey of artisan roasting, coffee bean varietals, and Blue Bottle Coffee’s culinary aesthetic. Alongside this pour over tasting, we will enjoy some of the best local milk and explore how coffee and milk interact.  Each student will also receive a 1/2 pound bag of coffee to prepare at home.

 ”We roast coffee on vintage gear, put it in compostable bags, and still get it to our customers within 48 hours. “ -BlueBottleCoffee.net
