coffeeBrew the Best Coffee of Your Life (At Home), Led by Eli Salomon CEO of Voga Coffee - SOLD OUT

Many of us are finding that we're visiting our favorite cafe less frequently for our daily jolt, these days.

Did you know that with some basic know-how, you can produce a significantly tastier cup of coffee at home, using the same beans and equipment you already have lying around?

In this virtual event, Eli Salomon, CEO of Voga Coffee, will walk you through the theory and practice of brewing coffee. We will all virtually brew the same coffee beans together, using a basic series of steps. With this knowledge, you'll be able to take your favorite coffee beans to the next level, with proper brewing technique.

A few questions we'll answer are: What makes for a tasty coffee? Why do some coffee brewers make better coffee than others? How does proper brewing technique dramatically impact the flavor of your coffee?

The only equipment you need for this is a scale that weighs in grams, a water kettle, a grinder, and a coffee brewing device.

The event presentation will be one hour, with Q&A to follow, discussing participants' brewing questions.
