Caravan Coffee Roasters has announced a series of coffee workshops at its King’s Cross in-house coffee roastery. Commencing Saturday 1st March, the new monthly workshops, ‘Coffee Cupping and Home Brewing’ and ‘Latte Art’ will be hosted by Caravan’s head barista Estelle Bright and will offer guests an insight into the world of coffee.
The ‘Coffee Cupping and Home Brewing’ workshop (£40 per person) will involve advice on coffee cupping (tasting) and filter brew methods, plus the opportunity to brew your own picks using Aeropress, Chemex and French press. And at the ‘Latte Art’ workshop (£50 per person), Estelle will be your guide on how to free pour a coffee heart, tulip and rosette, also describing the basics behind milk chemistry. Guests at each class will be given a bag of Caravan coffee and brew card to take home.
Estelle, whose coffee career highlights include being the highest scoring female at the UK Barista Championships 2013 and achieving second place in the UK latte art championships in both 2008 and 2009, has worked at Caravan King’s Cross since it opened in August 2012.
Following on from the success of its Exmouth Market site – the first in London to combine an in-house roastery and restaurant, Caravan opened its Kings Cross restaurant in August 2012. The coffee roastery, now located at King’s Cross, supplies both Caravan restaurants, as well as wholesale and retail customers throughout London and the UK.
The Caravan coffee workshops will run fortnightly from Saturday, 1st March, lasting approximately two hours.
Reservations are now being taken. Limited space available so booking is essential.
