For those of you interested in a behind-the-scenes look at coffee roasting, we’re opening the doors of our Roastery to the public for one Big Weekend. On the 24th and 25th November 2018 between 10am and 4pm, you’ll be able to drop in for a coffee, take on one of our taste challenges or try your hand at latte art. At various times during the day we will also allow access to our production space where you can get up close and personal to our brand new 25kg Probat coffee roaster!
If you are a coffee equipment fan, we will have an array of equipment on display and are please to be teaming up with VA Machinery. They will be bringing along the Victoria Arduino Black Eagle espresso machine, along with the long anticipated Mythos 2 grinder.
For those of you who would like to dig a little deeper into the world of speciality coffee we’ve put together a programme of demonstrations on each day. These are ticket only events, all of which can be booked on our website here. We’re restricting the number of people we allow at each demonstration to make sure there is plenty of opportunity to ask questions. Here is the current list of demonstrations:
Coffee Roasting Demo
Get up close and personal to our brand new Probat coffee roaster and watch Angharad roast a batch of coffee. We’ll explain the various stages of roasting and be on hand to answer your questions.
Our coffee broker, Mercanta, will be bringing along a selection of coffees and you’ll have
a chance to sample them all, as well as learning all about the tasting technique we refer to as ‘cupping’.
Introduction to Aeropress
Our team will introduce you to the Aeropress coffee brewer and demonstrate some of the various ways it can be used to brew coffee. We’ll also be on hand to answer your coffee brewing questions.
Join us for an informal session of tea tasting. We’ll brew various teas from our range, giving you a chance to sample each of them.
Tickets for each of our demonstrations are £20 per person and include a Carvetii Goody Bag. We’re offering early bird tickets throughout October at £15 per person.
