Filter Coffee Class
I decided to sit in for Filter Coffee Class and learned the fundamentals of making a good cup of coffee, including ratios. While the full house at the Gold Cup Analysis Class in the afternoon appears an omen of what would be in store for the scientific take on coffee research with a whole of math and stabbing of calculators involve. I’m particularly fascinated by The Coffee Brewing Handbook that had graphs with X- and Y- axis for a brewing control chart.
I didn’t realise that we’ve worked up quite an appetite and having a chat with last year’s World Barista Champion Hidenori Izaki from Japan was the icing on the cake – he even signed my paper napkin. Although I was famished yearning for local fare, the caffeine was buzzing and the atmosphere composed of coffee lovers was most welcoming.
