Event Description

Join Jed Vander Zanden of Sidecar Coffee Roasters for this hands-on coffee 101 and home roasting workshop.  Jed started out as a home roaster himself nearly 10 years ago, but his love and expertise quickly grew that into Sidecar Coffee as we know it today, the deliciously unique landmark in Cedar Falls… known for its dedicated roasting space where Jed creates his magic, the coffee shop on the hill, and home delivery service.

 In this workshop, Jed will lead a seed to cup talk, delving into the origin of coffee, along with how it is grown and processed.  We will have a coffee tasting, pairing two or three very different coffees side by side, very tactilely understanding the beautiful diversity in the notes and flavors of coffee.  Students will have the unique opportunity to roast their own green coffee beans using three methods:  a Behmor roaster, a Quest M3 roaster, and a good ol’ cast iron skillet.  Each student will take home ~1/2 lb of coffee roasted during the workshop.


Cost:  $40 per person (includes course fee and $8.00 materials fee)

Special Notes:  For the best tasting experience, please avoid wearing heavy perfume.

Please register by May 23rd, 2015.  If the class minimum is not met, a refund may be issued in lieu of this workshop offering.
