Learn how to make a transcendent cup of your Exceedingly Rare coffee in this virtual hands-on brewing session. Led by one of our expert Blue Bottle Trainers, the class will cover our proprietary pour over technique, the very method baristas use in our cafes, as well as tips on how to find the optimal dose and grind size of coffee. Along the way, you’ll learn why we prefer certain brew tools and become empowered to make your most consistently delicious pour overs yet.

Bring a cup of your just-brewed Exceedingly Rare coffee to this virtual tasting. Led by one of our expert Blue Bottle Trainers, the tasting will heighten your appreciation of the single origin at hand, giving you a deeper understanding of how the coffee’s origins and processing influence its taste. It will also cover the 5 coffee flavor categories that we teach to baristas, including how to analyze a coffee’s balance and finish, giving you the foundation to identify your own coffee preferences. You’ll leave the class with an improved coffee palate—and the vocabulary to describe what you taste and the coffees you prefer.

Javier Acevedo

Trainer, Blue Bottle Coffee

Javier Acevedo has been with Blue Bottle Coffee since 2015, working his way from Barista to Cafe Leader to Trainer. His two passions are hospitality and teaching coffee so there isn’t a place he would rather be than at Blue Bottle. Nothing makes him happier than a berry pound cake and a Three Africas pour over. When he’s not talking coffee, he spends his time saving stray kittens and playing chess.
