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.
