As New Yorkers, coffee is the lifeblood that keeps many of us firing on all cylinders for much of the week. But drinking cup after cup of our favorite dark roast hardly makes us connoisseurs in its rich complexities and nuances.
As a professional barista and manager at PORTS Coffee & Tea, Urban Eisley knows all about the flavor profiles in a cup of ‘jo. He has an exceptional palate for single origin brews and has spent significant time honing his coffee-curating skills. He’s also been a regular competitive participant in the specialty coffee world for over 8 years.
Immerse yourself in the world of single origin coffee on a tour of its origins, roasting techniques, and preparation methods. Learn about the factors that affect the aroma and taste of coffee, how blends and single origins differ, and the steps involved from picking a bean to brewing a cup. During a blind tasting of coffees from around the globe, discover how to describe the smells and tastes in your ideal cup, how to order it, and whether you prefer French Press, pour-over, or Aeropress.
This experience will be confirmed once at least 5 guests have booked.
