Coffee Basics: Learn How to Brew It

Coffee with Kinser

Your Coffee Guide

My name is Kinser, I like to think of myself as a coffee guide. My passion for coffee has led me on a journey to help bridge the gap between Coffee Craftsman and Coffee Connoisseur. Chattanooga Coffee Culture is exciting and is a good time to get a hands on feel for home brewing. There is always something new to learn, so join me on my quest to learn it all and share it with others like yourself.

Your Host 10.13.2018

We not only strive to serve the best coffee, but also value building relationships and connecting one another. Each order is made with our customer in mind because they are the reason we are still here today.

Event Schedule

Coffee Origins

We will brush up on our coffee origins and then get a look into the different variety of coffee beans and then cover the different levels for the bean during roasting 

Hands on Brewing

The good stuff! We will split into groups of two and get a hands on experience with brewing with the Hario, Chemex, French Press, and some others. Learn all the variables that goes into creating a delicious cup and find out the difference between each brew method.
Coffee Pairing

Coffee Pairing

For good food and coffee pairings you need to look for a harmonious balance in taste, and synergy of flavors at the same time. Although there are basic guides to pairing, some of the most beautiful combinations deny all of them. Every great coffee has unique characteristics and should be paired based on that.
