Tasting

Similar to wine tasting, coffee tasting requires professional expertise. We will provide you with insight on how to recognize flavors in coffee. You will practice your coffee tasting skills by tasting coffee of different varieties and from various origins, and by comparing coffee brewed using different methods. After this workshop, you will be able to identify the different variables that contribute to the flavors of coffee.

Brewing

Learn how to brew filter coffee using the Origami drippers - our favorite pour over coffee brewer. The technique you learn using the Origami dripper can be transferred to other equipment, such as the popular Hario V60, Chemex, Kalita Wave, and many more. We will use a refractometer to measure the extraction and the strength of the coffee to test and improve the brew. You will also explore flavor notes to be able to describe the coffee.

    "Latte art cursus gedaan bij Sango. Hele leuke, fijne en gezellige ervaring! Veel geleerd over koffie, melk opschuimen en latte art. Je ziet echt dat de eigenaar een enorme passie heeft voor koffie en dit graag overdraagt. Ik ben naar huis gegaan met veel kennis en leuke vormpjes om mee te oefenen. Echt een aanrader! Koffie is overigens ook heerlijk."

    "We greatly enjoyed our Tasting workshop. Mitchell is an friendly and knowledgeable host.
    He gave us a detailed introduction to the history of coffee, variants, flavors, the brewing process and more. To our surprise, it was a private session meaning that the content could be tailored to our needs, which was very much appreciated :) We learned a lot in a pleasant and interactive way and look forward to put our newly gained knowledge to the test!"

    "We hebben bij eigenaar Mitchell de barista workshop gevolgd. In ongeveer twee uur neemt Mitchell je mee in het hele proces vanaf de koffieplant tot het daadwerkelijk gebruiken van de machine. Je krijgt uitleg over de verschillende soorten koffiebonen, het bewerkingsproces, koffie branden, smaakprofielen en nog veel meer. Dat doet hij op een persoonlijke manier, met veel deskundigheid en bovenal een enorm enthousiasme voor alles rondom koffie. We hebben veel geleerd en kunnen de complexiteit die achter een kop koffie zit nu beter waarderen. Echt een aanrader! Bovendien een hele leuke zaak en natuurlijk goede koffie."
