Coffee Courses at the Roastery

 

An Introduction to Speciality Coffee

Always been intrigued about coffee and how it’s grown, harvested and roasted? Get involved in one of our FREE coffee schools to find out more!

Taste coffee with us, understand how we roast and learn how to brew coffee in different ways at one of our open nights. Watch a roast in progress and see the coffee beans turn from green to brown. Understand how we control the roast to emphasise different characteristics.

Find out everything about speciality coffee, how it’s grown, processed and ethically sourced.

See for yourself how we roast our coffee with a live roasting demonstration.

We finish off the evening with a mini brewing session. This is where you will find out about grind sizes, brewing devices and brewing ratios allowing you to consistently make the best coffee at home.

Your training will start with a little intro as to what specialty coffee is. Then we will move onto what we do here at Two Chimps HQ.

Finally, the workshop will finish with a ‘drinks-off’. This is where we explain the difference between some popular coffee drinks. You will then have the opportunity to make these drinks with the tips and tricks we have taught you.

Introduction to Latte Art Workshop

So, we know how annoying it can be when you just can’t get your latte art to be how you want it. Our ‘Introduction to Latte Art Workshop’ will turn you into the Picasso of the coffee world.

To start, we will show you how to texturise milk correctly. The key is to successfully steam your milk to create a glossy, microfoam texture which we will, of course, show you how to do.

Next up, we will give you the secret to pouring. Maintaining, adjusting and controlling your flow of milk are essential first steps to creating your latte art.

Once you have the pour on lockdown, we’ll teach you all about the wiggle. In answer to your question, no, the wiggle isn’t the dance your uncle does at weddings. The wiggle is all about the movement of the milk and how to ‘lay’ it on the crema of your coffee.

After mastering the wiggle, the latte art you will learn in this basic latte art course is ‘The Heart’. The heart is the simplest latte art to master, but one that’s sure to get heads turning.

Lastly, the rest of the workshop is all yours. Use this time to perfect your latte art. Don’t worry if you get stuck; the on-site baristas will be right by your side.
