The Design of Coffee – Mike Romea

To begin the week of making the best coffee, we needed to first learn how to taste coffee so we started with cupping. Then we began to make different types of coffee (Turkish has been a favorite) and seeing how the various methods (french press, pour over, blending, coffee machine, etc.) make the drink taste different. Some in our class also roasted their own coffee beans. Later this week we will discuss optimizing the process to use the least amount of energy. Of course, the class is also excited to try their hand at latte art!
