GENERAL INFO: On Saturday, October 3rd, Jaime Hodgkin and Daniel Metcalf of Stumptown Coffee Roasters will host a coffee roasting seminar at Dolcezza’s Gelato Factory + Coffee Lab from 10 AM to 12 Noon. Coffee aficionados will have the opportunity to sample Stumptown’s Hair Bender Blend at three essential parts of the roasting process, which will show how the flavor profiles dramatically shift with each passing minute. This in-depth look at the roast will give a better appreciation for talent of roasting and see how Stumptown continues to be the leader in the coffee industry. Next, guests will have a chance to learn about three different brewing methods, AeroPress, Chemex and Bee House, while sampling three of Stumptown’s seasonal, single origin coffees: Ethiopia Mordecofe, Guatemala Finca El Injerto Bourbon and Indonesia Beis Penantan. Attendees will see how various brew guides impact the flavor profile of various coffees and see how preferences vary across the board. As an added bonus, those who attend the class will receive a complimentary bag of single-origin coffee beans and a pint of limited edition espresso gelato, made with perfectly pulled Stumptown’s Hair Bender shots.
Those who are unable to make the morning class will be able to stop by Dolcezza’s Gelato Factory + Coffee Lab between 12:30 PM to 3 PM to attend one of their free public coffee brewing demos. Guests will also be able to order Dolcezza’s limited edition espresso gelato at five of their DC area locations until this special flavor is totally consumed: Dolcezza 14th Street, Dolcezza Dupont, Dolcezza Georgetown, Dolcezza Mosaic District and Dolcezza Union Market.
TICKETS can be purchased here for the early bird price of $20 for September 17 and 20, and for $25 after that.
