Clintonville’s Crimson Cup Coffee House is kicking off 2013 with a series of four classes designed to teach central Ohioans to appreciate the finer points of coffee and tea. All courses will begin at 7 p.m. Monday evenings at the Coffee House, 4541 North High Street, Columbus, Ohio 43214.
C102 • Single Cup Brewing – January 14, 2013
During this class, Crimson Cup will prepare the same coffee using three different single-cup brewing methods: the Chemex, Hario v60, and Press Pot (or French Press). Comparisons will be drawn among the differences that each method produces in coffee flavor and why someone would choose one over the others. Cost of the class is $20, and attendees will receive a sample bag of coffee as well as a 15 percent discount off brewing equipment.
C103 • Origin Tasting (repeated each month) – January 21, 2013
Each class will feature the week’s featured Brew Bar coffee, usually a single-origin varietal. Cupping techniques and protocol will be taught and followed. Background on each coffee will be provided, and participants will share their perceptions of the taste, flavor, aroma, body, and acidity of the coffee. Cost to participate is $10, and attendees will receive a sample bag of coffee as well as a drink from the coffee house Brew Bar.
T101 • Introduction to Tea – January 28, 2013
This class will delve into Camellia Sinensis – the tea plant. Participants will learn the methods used to process this plant and resulting teas – white, green, black, Oolong and Pu’erh. Herbal and Rooibos tea alternatives also will be discussed, along with health benefits associated with each. The cost to participate is $15, and participants will receive a 25% discount off any tea or equipment.
C101 • Coffee – What, Where and How – February 4, 2013
This introductory class is meant to provide a crash course on all things coffee. Topics include: What exactly is a coffee bean?
