It’s not all the time that workshops on coffee making and tasting are held particularly in London. But thanks to this one establishment, people now eager to learn about the right way of roasting coffee can do so through a workshop.
In North London, Caravan Coffee Roasters is offering a series of workshops to interested coffee addicts. These activities take place at the restaurant’s roastery in King’s Cross.
The concept launched by the restaurant is to provide an avenue for diners interested to learn about coffee production to try their hand at making and tasting this most well loved drink worldwide. So apart from being a dining place, it also serves as an in-house roaster.
The workshop is very informative and when several people are in attendance, it can be a fun learning experience. The activity is lead by a head-barista, Baptiste Kreyder, who explains the different kinds of coffee beans, the production aspect as well as the different tastes of beans and blends. Attendees are also taught how to match a specific type of coffee with food. At the end of the workshop, a mini-tasting event takes place with complimentary pastries.
Beyond the basics, those craving to learn more can try coffee roasting, home brewing, latte arts, espresso making and cupping. New coffee workshops will be introduced on April 13.
Caravan is the first establishment in London to house a restaurant and roastery in one site. It’s original site is in Exmouth Market while the second site which opened in August 2012 is in King’s Cross.
