What participants do

Making coffee at home can seem hit or miss - you might have a great tasting cup one day, but a more mundane cup the next. Making a great cup of coffee doesn’t happen by accident, but luckily the techniques are easy to learn, and even easier to repeat!

This 30 minute hands-on tutorial is fun with a team or with prospects, and fits perfectly as a stand-alone class or as part of a longer meeting. Your Driftaway Educator will explain how the Aeropress is different from other coffee makers, and why it’s great for making a quick and delicious cup. You’ll learn how to use the Aeropress to make either hot or iced coffee, and about the five coffees in your Coffee Explorer Box, included in the class. You’ll leave with everything you need to reliably recreate the perfect Aeropress coffee for yourself at home, day after day.

You can choose the regular (hot) coffee brewing class, or the iced coffee brewing class - both use the Aeropress coffee maker. Note: the iced Aeropress class requires a kitchen scale.
