The basic rules of coffee

It’s International Coffee Day, apparently. Ish.

No better day than to share some pictures of my Father’s Day present from the kids this year – a 90 minute Home Brew Course at Small Batch in Brighton, which I did a week or so ago.

It was terrific to get some basic rules in my head about what happens when you’re making coffee. How the bean is shattered by the grinder. The size of the lumps it shatters into. The length of time and the temperature you want to immerse those lumps for.

It was a cross between an engineering and a chemistry course. With much, much better coffee.

Highly recommended. Give it a go.
