Class 1: Culture
Dive into the history, anatomy and wonder that is coffee! Come with us on a journey as we explore coffees vast landscape. Starting as an exotic plant and traded commodity, its present as a unique yet ubiquitous beverage and it's exciting unforeseen future.
Class 2: Concepts
In this section we will dive deeper into understanding how we can take a green coffee cherry seed, roast it, grind it into a powder, add hot water and make something beautifully delicious. When you think about it, it seems improbable, but there really is a method to the madness of brewing coffee.
Class 3: Craft
It’s time to get your hands dirty, literally. We will take all that we have learned and come to appreciate about coffee and apply it to brewing, pulling espresso shots and steaming milk. This is where we leave the comfort of the classroom and enter the laboratory, not merely as bystanders, but as participants in the process of brewing that perfect cup.

Town: Santa Ana
Farm: Monte Verde
Elevation: 1200-1500 MASL
The Monte Verde coffee farm has been around for generations. Rene Contreras - who is fifth in the family line to run this farm, - along with their family, are deeply invested in their local community and dedicated to providing health to the town and the local stray animals.
Due to the small size of this farm, it only produces a limited amount of coffee each year. It’s closely monitored by the importer, and together with the farmer they are continuously perfecting their process. That's why this bourbon varietal from the town of Santa Ana produces an excellent, smooth bodied coffee, with hints of nutty chocolate and baked apples.
