I will take the process of making gourmet coffees from the beginning to the end.
I will start with the beans. Guests will select and experiment with several bean types from our traditional dark roast blend of espresso beans to our lighter roasts like the Farm Girl Blend. All can make a great cup of coffee or latte but you need to know the differences and the origins of the beans to understand the flavoring.
Tips and tricks to using the machine for safety will be shared as well as adjusting the settings to make half-caf or stronger ristretto.
Milk and its use is important. I will talk and experience ways to make milk be more frothy for a cappuccino vs a latte with less froth. Position and technique are important here.
The espresso machine may look intimidating but don't let that scare you. This is where the water, grinds and pressure come together for the perfect shot. Guests will use the machine to froth the milk as well.
Lastly I will finish the coffee with a cocktail of flavor shots like Creme Brulee or Dark mocha latte.
When finished you will be a pro barista and will appreciate much more your friends behind the counter & your latte!
