Be Your Own Barista

November 29, 2007

Kitten Coffee, a Clinton Hill-based coffee roaster on Skillman between Dekalb and Willoughby, not only distributes coffee to many of this city’s fine establishments, it also offers a chance for you, the closeted coffee connoisseur, to perfect your roasting and brewing skills.

On the first Sunday of each month, Kitten Coffee experts teach three-hour workshops for $40 per head.  They describe the class as follows:

The Espresso Enthusiasts’ Workshop will answer all the secrets to perfect espresso:What is an espresso blend? How important is the bean?  The roasting process.  The difference between Arabica and Robusta?  How should a true espresso coffee be made?  How to achieve that smooth, textured microfoam milk?  How to handle and store the coffee – delivering all the pro barista’s secrets for you to take home or to your next employer.

 The next class is on January 6th.  Advance registration is recommended.
