CafeBiz 2015 - 23rd and 24th May - Brisbane Convention Centre
Sat 23rd & Sun24th May
Brisbane Convention Centre,
CafeBiz is on again, plenty to see and do over a busy May weekend in Brisbane.
* They will host the World’s Richest Barista Competition, a $50,000 prize pool to the best team in the country.
* Site Sponsor Espresso Company Australia with be running the Cafe Biz Espresso Bar
* Cafe Biz Training Hub - Errr... with me!
On the Saturday I'll be running a session called:
"Brewed Coffee – Science and Sensory"
When: Saturday, 23 May 2015 from 12:30pm to 2:30pm
Cost: $75 incl. gst
Course Covers: In this session we will take you on a journey of scientific and sensory discovery. From the 1970’s dripolator and the current craze of Egyptian kettle pour-over to where the industry brew bars need to head in the future to provide a better cup of coffee with more profitability.
We will look at some of the science of brewing and the targets that need to be hit to ensure a consistent and repeatable cup full of positive attributes and how to negate the traits that we prefer not to be there. More importantly, we will also tell you the nerdy science that you don’t need to produce a great cup. Best of all to save you from listening to me rabbit-on we include a session of hands-on taste testing with brews at different temperatures so you can see the results for yourself.
The aim of this session is to increase your overall understanding of brewed coffee characteristics, their potential viability in a cafe environment and to improve your sensory skills in tasting the differences.
Tickets available direct from CafeBiz:
(these ticket will also include entry into the event on both days I believe)
I'm really looking forward to doing the session and hope to have a pile of CoffeeSnobs members come and do the session or even just sit up the back and heckle me.
