    Can't get enough coffee knowledge? Come join us every other Saturday from 2:00 - 3:30 PM for our Advanced Espresso Class. Students will dive deeper into learning more about what espresso is, the multiple variables at play when brewing it, and best practices for dialing it in. We will focus on palate development through food pairings as well as partake in a variety of coffee tasting exercises. The goal of this course is to better understand our favorite coffees, as well as learn how to understand new ones. This is a very hands-on class, so come prepared to get your hands dirty and your head buzzing in pursuit of great espresso!

    Class size is limited to 2 to 4 people to ensure a great experience. If you have a group of 4 or more, you can email us at to schedule a class. Our minimum class size is 2 people. If only one person books a class we will be in contact the evening before to work with you to reschedule a new date.

    NOTE: 24-hour advance cancellation required for a refund. Our classes are designed around 4 people, so it's important that we have enough time to fill the empty slot with another person. Thanks for understanding.
