Alongside our 2.5 hour hands on session, with this course you will gain access to a suite of video content that will kickstart your learning. What this means is you will spend more time in your session brewing, tasting and learning. Our additional content will allow you to digest the theoretical side of brewing before & after the session in order to become an even better brewer.

We focus on the 'pour over' method, but are happy to help you with everything you need to enjoy the entire spectrum of filter beverages, whether its at home, in the café or anywhere else you can plug in your kettle.
