What you'll do
Coffee is a BIG DEAL in NZ. We'll learn 5 ways to make extraordinary coffee using NZ's best roasts. We'll learn about the coffee beans themselves using cupping techniques, and delve into the various ways of extracting flavour from them. We'll get into milk art from stovetop plungers to machine steam. We'll also learn to pull amazing espresso shots using the astounding Rocket R Nine One which not only allows for manual pressure profiling of each shot but can be used to create great fantastic specialty drinks, from lavender lattes to salted caramel cappuccinos. You'll develop your own signature drink using a range innovative ingredients.
Patrick & Emma-Kate
I have more than 15 years experience making coffee and speciality drinks around New Zealand. I've also trained with the Kiwi WBC judge and researched coffee techniques in 30 countries. I've worked with roasters around the country to understand their practices and flavour profiles and have shared this knowledge with friends and guests alike.
Espresso, tea, mineral water, piccolo's, affogatos, cubana's, cold filter... we'll explore the wide world of drinks.
Probably the best professional espresso machine for home use, the Rocket R Nine One, a dual boiler, pressure profiling…
