Ever wondered why your coffee tastes different when your favorite barista makes it, compared to when you prepare it at home? There are a ton of factors that can influence the outcome of the brewing process; everything from equipment, water temperature, coffee freshness and grind size to dosing, timing and human error. We've made a resolution in 2017 to highlight and educate on a variety of topics impacting coffee and espresso brewing methodologies through a series of Monday evening bar classes we've dubbed Assembly Nights.
We are constantly looking for ways to broaden our horizons while also looking for outlets to share our passion with others. So, we've developed Assembly Nights to help kick things off. Monday nights, beginning in February will be all about education and we want to invite you to be a part. Right now there are 8 classes lined up, covering a wide variety of topics related to coffee, espresso and more.
Classes are $15 each and will be moderated by our Head Roaster James and Head Barista Clinton at our shop in the Hotel Lafayette. Each tightly-focused class will be roughly 45 minutes to an hour long, with enough structure in place to move things along while also allowing a fluid dialogue and discussion throughout. They are also limited to 10 seats per class, so spaces won't last long.

Head to our shop page to reserve your tickets now. If a class is sold out, don't worry, there will be future dates added, particularly on more popular classes.
Hope to see you there!
