Making Great Coffee Workshop
April 13, 2012, 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Beach Bum Cafe
For all you coffee lovers who want to support our local coffee industry….
Shawn Steiman, a.k.a. Dr. Coffee, will be conducting a class on coffee at Beach Bum Cafe on Friday, April 13, 2012 from 5:00 – 7:00 p.m. Shawn received a Ph.D from the University of Hawaii College of Tropical Agriculture with a special focus on coffee. He currently works as a consultant to farmers, coffee roasters, and the industry as a whole. He is also the author of “The Hawai’i Coffee Book: A Gourmet’s Guide from Kona to Kaua’i”. During the presentation, Shawn will start with the basics about coffee quality so folks have the tools to appreciate the tasting. He will then discuss brewing in general: what is important to know to make good coffee and how those things are implemented into various coffee makers. Then he will talk about the specifics of brewing. Using as many brewing methods as we can, the group will brew the same coffee on them and see just how the taste changes. The cost is $20 for Slow Food O’ahu members, $25 for non-members. Limited to 12 participants. Please contact Michelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
