If you ever wondered why coffee people talk about where their coffee is from, then join Press Coffee Roasters for Coffee 101 at its cafes in Chandler and Scottsdale. These one-hour sessions take you around the world with a sampling of four distinctly different coffees.
Based on the coffee cupping format that coffee professionals use to evaluate beans and roasts, the tasting is an interactive experience of smelling, slurping and learning. The coffee experts at Press will guide you through a brief history of each coffee and how their journey from seed to cup has created the flavors you taste today. At the end you’ll have a much better understanding of coffee regions and flavors. You’ll leave ready to join the coffee conversation with a better understanding of which types you love and why.
The tastings are held every Saturday from 10 a.m. at Press’ Scottsdale Quarter location and every first and third Saturday at its Chandler café, also at 10 a.m. Cost is $10 and after the event you’ll receive a gift card to use at any Press Coffee location (airport location excluded). Space is limited and advance registration is encouraged. Sign up for the tastings at PressCoffee.com/tastings.
