How it works
In this 60-minute class, you’ll brew cold coffee in 2 ways and taste them side by side - Cold brew (brewed 16 hours before the class) and iced coffee in the Aeropress (brewed in class). To brew the cold brews, add the mesh bag in 3 cups of water in a large mason jar or equivalent container. Then keep the container on a kitchen counter or stick it in the fridge. Note - you don't have to make all the cold brews - just make any one of your choices. Balanced is our most popular profile.
