By popular demand, we have expanded our coffee curriculum to explore the world of grinding and brewing the perfect cup of coffee.

COLD-BREW IS THE NEW ICED COFFEE:   

Iced coffee is so 5 minutes ago! Plus, hot coffee poured over stale freezer ice is gross. Assemble a reusable cold-brew coffee kit to take home and enjoy the sweet benefits of cold-water coffee brewing.

POUR-OVER BASICS:

Paging Doctor Schlumbohm: In 1941 Dr. Peter Schlumbohm invented the Chemex Brewer which is still widely-used for the "pour-over" method. It's beauty and simplicity is unmatched and it produces an excellent cup of coffee. Contrary to popular belief, a handlebar mustache and tattoos are not required to operate the Chemex, and we'll prove it by making you an expert in no time flat!

KAHLUA-DOMESTICA:

We at the Institute decided it was time to upscale the White Russian. We'll deconstruct that infamous coffee liqueur we all used to sneak from our parents liqueur cabinet, then start a batch of our own using better ingredients:  Kahlua-Domestica! Last but not least, we toast your hard work with a cocktail. Cheers!

DISSECTING MR. COFFEE:

Don't worry: he'll be heavily sedated. We'll poke, prod and probe the iconic--though inadequate–machine from the perspective of a barista and discover why it would be put to better use as a lawn ornament than a coffee maker.
