Time for a forum day at RAVE coffee

Recommended Posts

Ok Folks, I have been speaking with Rob at RAVE and he has agreed to give us RAVE HQ to ourselves on a given Sunday, so with this in mind I am organising a forum members day either may or June date to be Confirmed.

 

What will be involved

 

The plan is to set up four work stations within RAVE HQ and allow the members that attend to work in groups and rotate around the four stations to gain experience on the activities. Each group will send around an hour on each station (to be hosted by one of resident experienced team) so this is an opportunity to get 4 hours of experience on fab equipment and hopefully learn some new skills.

 

Station One

 

Brewed experience - we will do a cupping session to begin with followed by explaining and demonstrating a variety of brewed methodologies, you will get the chance to brew our own cup of coffee from one of the methods. (Syphon, V60, aeropress, clever and Chemex)

 

Station Two

 

lever Station - You will learn about what levers are and what they are capable of, you will get hands on time on a Londinium L1, L1 P, la pavoni and a la cimbali lever machine. You will get the chance to savour the quality of espresso that is produced from levers.

 

Station Three

 

Pressure profiling pump machines - you will learn about what pressure profiling is, get hands on experience with a la marzocco gs3 mp (strada kit) and a Vesuvius machine. we will show you the importance of pressure, what flat pressure shots are like, what preinfusion does to a shot and be able to sample fab espresso from these great machines.

 

Station Four

 

Latte art - you will learn the art of texturing milk and temperature, then the basics of latte art, getting the opportunity to practice yourself and hopefully great some great shapes going in the cup. we will run a latte art competition with prizes.

 

 

So potentially a fun filled informative day for members only (although guests will be permitted) the start time will be a relaxed 10 am and we will go through to around 3-4 in the afternoon, ww will have the compak range for you to use as an ek43 and mahlkonig Guatemala and other great grinders.

 

we are going to charge £20 for the day to cover costs involved and raise some money for the forum funds, so if you are interested get your name down on this thread, I will release the date very soon and will require a deposit off folk to the tune of £10 once the date is released and you confirm you will attend. Spaces will be limited to 40 people, guests will also have o pay £20.

If that would be viable (much appreciated) I could look into flights. When will you firm a date up?
