Good introduction to various manual brewing methods and the impact of temperature, grind size, ratio on taste

Andrew Gregory Sep 2023

Ron was very knowledgeable about coffee and was happy to answer questions and have conversation. The venue was a great location above the cafe, and had all the equipment needed. The coffee beans provided were top quality. I learnt so much about manually brewing coffee, something that seems easy but there is so much subtlety involved!

Christos was very knowledgeable and explained the different beans and brewing recipes to get the desired taste. I wanted to improve my v60 methods and I benefited from taking this class with new brewing skills and better understanding of coffee

Great learning experience with chill environment; liked the class size to get the most out of the session. Christos was very knowledgeable and had explained well on effects of different brewing method and coffee processing. We tested out the method this morning and our filter coffee experience was definitely much improved!

Christos was very informative and helpful. We could tell he was highly experienced and passionate about his craft. We are now getting set up with drip coffee and look forward to trying a bunch of blends!

Teacher was chilled yet informative and guided us through the different methods of manual brewing nicely. Got to taste a few samples of the beans on offer which was nice. Also a good, basic introduction to learning how to identify the different notes and flavours in your coffee.

Rafael Duran Mar 2022

Great teacher, loved the coffees we got to try, specially the pink Bourbon (Colombian). It was super informative and the part where we got to make the coffee was great. Really fun workshop. Recommended.

Great experience! Learned a lot about brewing, a lot of practical stuff to improve how I brew coffee at home. Kunal was super lovely and knowledgeable. I’d recommend getting there early to have breakkie at the cafe beforehand (I do not advise doing this afterwards as the cafe is super busy around brunch time!).

Eva Cheng Apr 2021

Great workshop - packed in a lot of info and tastings with enough time to practice making two types of coffee! Definitely recommend - knowledgeable facilitator, practical info and skills to take home (and you get a bag of beans to take home to try too!). Plus, it’s located at the cafe so you can make a morning of it with brunch afterwards

Anonymized Customer Dec 2020

I gifted this workshop to my bf and attended as well and we were both so impressed with the workshop and Kunal the teacher - he had so much knowledge to share, plenty of time to ask questions and be involved and brew our own coffees. I’m not a coffee drinker and don’t enjoy the taste but this class converted me! I would I highly recommend this class and Kunal the teacher on the day is - thank you for making our day and this workshop so enjoyable! Highly recommend 10/10

Really fun class and our coffee coach was really kind and approachable. Learned heaps in just 2-3 hours and was so wired from the coffee. They even gave us a free bag of coffee at the end to take home, which was awesome. Would highly recommend this to anyone.

Jake and I have learnt so much about coffee culture. We now see coffee in a whole new light and will definitely appreciate the substance behind every single cuppa. Highly recommended. Small class of 4. We each had a complimentary pack of coffee beans after the class.

Derek Hambrett Feb 2020

Great, knowledgeable teacher. Smaller group size so much easier to ask questions. Highly recommend for any coffee enthusiast!

Andrea Pizarro Nov 2019

Good class! we learnt a lot about brewing coffee and the different varieties. Andy is really passionate and answered all our coffee rookie questions.

Karen Wu Nov 2019

The teacher was experienced and knowledgeable. It was a bit crowded and at times hard to hear due to the noise from the cafe.
Great experience of learning how to do coffee cupping and the different filter methods and grind size.
Would have been great to be shown the variety of filter coffee equipment available for purchase. We were looking at the equipment ourselves and some were not shown in the class so we didn't know what to choose.
Lovely touch with a bag of coffee beans to take home.

Johannes Ruyter Oct 2019

Great class, small sizes and tailored to the audience skill and random coffee questions. A great walkthrough!

Hana Musa Aug 2018

Great value for money. Andy was very knowledgeable and happy to answer questions. Loved his analogies :) Class was kept small which was good as I think it would be quite hard with a big group. I learned a lot!
