Join Rob Hoos, Director of Coffee at Nossa Familia Coffee, for a hands-on roasting workshop. This event is for professional roasters who are already roasting coffee, but would like to focus on their profile development and work with their coffee to make positive changes. The course will involve three intensive days of roasting, cupping, and critical thinking.
We invite you to join us at Nossa Familia Coffee's Central Eastside Café to learn about coffee from farm to cup, and join us in a coffee cupping (tasting). We'll take you through the journey of coffee - discussing how it is grown, processed, roasted, and prepared. You'll also learn about the Nossa Familia Coffee sourcing philosophy, and our approach to social and environmental responsibility. Finally, we'll lead you through a coffee cupping to experience a variety of coffees, tasting them and learning how to identify flavor differences and profiles.
