Step 1: Determining your needs (30 min)
We'll have a short chat about what kind of coffee you want to learn brewing. This can be done over the phone, a video-call, or by email—you decide.
Step 2: Gear selection (30 min)
In this phase we'll determine if you need any new gear and if so, we'll make a list and even shop for you and ship to your door. This is a complementary service—you will not pay a dime more than what you would on Amazon (and sometimes our prices will be even lower). Of course, if you prefer to shop yourself, you're welcome to. Either way, rest assured we'll help you make the right choice of the highest quality equipment you'll enjoy using for years to come.
Step 3: Set-up and gear training (30 min)
We'll cut down the learning curve for you by explaining how everything works and how to use it. Demonstrating and doing it together beats reading a manual any day. We'll even help you set up your space for optimal coffee brewing workflow.
Step 4: Learning the technique (1 h)
The next and, arguably, the most exciting step is learning the new brewing technique itself. We'll hold your hand every step of the way.
Step 5: Overview (30 min)
This might be the most important step in the long-run success of embracing this new technique. It is clear to us you'll have questions once you start brewing this way on your own—we'll be there to answer them. About a week later, we'll meet for a quick overview and a Q&A session to solidify your knowledge and boost your confidence.
