The consumers' demand for transparent and ethical coffee is growing steadily. Choosing "Organic", "Fair-Trade", and the like, is becoming standard purchasing habits. Though this type of consciousness is for the greater overall good, it is very important for consumers to know the real meaning behind these terms. This can become a complex topic.
We are happy to let you, coffee lovers with curious minds, know that this class is all about "Decaf" and the class will be hosted by Kris Wu (everybody loves Kris, right?) The broad topics Kris will cover in his talk will include:
Does decaf matter? Why does it even exist?
Are all decafs created equal? "How is it made?"
What effect does the processing have on taste?
How "decaf" is decaf anyways?
Also, as usual, we will serve some NICE coffee and baked goods to those GOOD students!
See you all!
We will be able to have a peek-a-view to "Barista Competition" by guest hosts, Karine & David from Phil & Sebastian Coffee Roasters, Calgary. There will be Western Canada Barista Championship in Vancouver on Feb. 6th. Karine & David are participating there; Karine has been coaching competition and judging national almost 10 years, and has been involved WBC for the last 5 years but it's her first time to participate in the competition. David, who is coffee roaster at P&S, got the 2nd at Canadian Barista Championship in 2017 and also the 2nd place for Canadian Cup Tasters in 2017. Karine & David will share their approaches to the competition presentation and also talk about what judges are looking for at the competition. It will be a great opportunity whoever is interested in Barista Competition!
Also, this will be a great chance to all the attendees to try wonderful Kenyan coffee, which is not released yet from P&S!
