Water Street Coffee Roaster’s Education Series offers our customers and community a unique opportunity to learn and explore the world of coffee and tea. Taught by our very own Roast Master, Seth Chapman will share valuable knowledge and insight on a variety of topics, ranging from home brewing, tea basics, espresso 101, and what exactly it takes to get coffee from seed to cup. Classes are held at Water Street’s roasting facility and are kept small to keep each session intimate. Participants will get a behind-the-scenes look and experience all of the effort and care that goes in to producing quality coffee and tea. Individuals will leave with a new perspective on coffee, knowledge and practices that can be applied at home, and a take home gift courtesy of Water Street.
