Coffee Tasting & Appreciation - Tour of Africa

  • August 5, 2012 · 2:30 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

We will taste 3 coffees from different countries in Africa, including Rwanda, Burundi & Ethiopia, which has different tasting profile. They are either SCAA Specialty Grade (score 80 or above).  They taste pretty different from the conventional or traditional bitter coffee we were once accustomed to. Coffee can be fruity, chocolaty, earthy, smoky... depending on their growing regions and processing methods. Since we are not doing milk tasting nor syrup tasting, we will skip the sugar and cream/milk. Prepared for black coffee.

I will guide you through the tasting notes with the SCAA "Coffee Taster's Flavor Wheel", a tool many coffee professionals use when tasting coffee. Also guide you through the characteristic of coffee from different processing method, stories about each origin and their tasting profile. I will also demonstrate different home coffee brewing method.

It's Sunday afternoon! Let's have fun, relax and have a great cup of coffee!

    It was disturbing, as I have been sending email asking for confirmation. I consider those people whom withdraw your RSVP less than 24 hours (esp. around midnight before event day), and did not reply my email chasing for confirmation as no show as well. Thus will be removed from the group.

    Interested in learning and tasting. Frankly, I am quite amateur about coffee brewing. One question: it will be an English session or in Cantonese? Plan to bring a friend as well.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
