What you'll do
Whether you are a coffee novice or coffee snob, this live demo will provide you with an inviting, approachable and fun look into the world of coffee roasting! Firstly, we will discuss our favourite way to roast coffee and how we originally learned as Wildland Firefighters – in the cast iron pan! It is here you will hear more about the company and visibly see the changes in the beans once they are roasted. After that we will show you how we currently roast our coffee on our 15kg commercial machine and how the information you just acquired applies to this larger scale process. Lastly, we will conduct a coffee tasting (cupping) to show you the subtle differences in coffees, speak about the different varieties and help you understand what is in your cup!
I'm the co-founder of Calgary Heritage Roasting Company - a coffee roaster that has been in operation for nearly four years! My business partner and I learned to roast coffee beans in the forest as Wildland Firefighters in a cast iron pan. We currently sell green/unroasted coffee beans and teach people a variety of home roasting techniques during live performances and online. We recently opened our roastry/coffee shop in June of this year and have been running live coffee roasting classes that teach people about coffee, roasting, and why we are so passionate about what we do! We also perform coffee tastings so clients can gain a deeper understanding of the subtle differences in coffee.
You will be treated to a variety of coffees during the tasting portion of the event (cupping).
