Coffee Experience Nights

In a world where coffee has become more than just a morning ritual but a cultural phenomenon, Alfie & Co Coffee Roasters stands out for our dedication to not just serving great coffee but also sharing an awareness and understanding about its rich history and the intricacies of its production. Our Experience Nights, held throughout the year at our cosy Alfie & Co Coffee country house cafe, offer an immersive journey into the world of coffee - from bean to brew.

At the heart of each Experience Night is a deep dive into the history of coffee. Participants are taken on a journey back in time to discover the origins of coffee cultivation, tracing its roots from the ancient coffee forests of Ethiopia to its spread across the globe. You’ll learn about the different varieties of coffee plants, the significance of terroir in coffee cultivation, and the labour-intensive process of harvesting coffee cherries by hand and some of the ethical considerations around how we source our supply of fresh beans.

One of the highlights of the event is the exploration of the roasting process. Alfie & Co Coffee Roasters, known for our expertise in roasting beans to perfection, offer insights into the art and science behind roasting. Participants gain a deeper understanding of how different roast levels impact the flavour profile of coffee, from light and fruity to dark and robust. Through live demonstrations, you’ll get to see first-hand the transformation of green coffee beans into aromatic gems ready for brewing.

No coffee experience is complete without delving into the world of brewing. Alfie & Co Coffee Roasters Experience Nights cover a range of brewing methods, from traditional techniques like pour-over and French press to modern innovations such as AeroPress and Chemex. You’ll be guided through step-by-step demonstrations, learning the importance of grind size, water temperature, and extraction time in achieving the perfect cup of coffee. You’ll also discover and taste how each brewing method accentuates different flavour notes from the exact same roast and grind, offering a sensory exploration of coffee like never before.

Our next Alfie & Co Coffee Roasters Experience Night, is scheduled for the 15th of March 2024 at the Alfie & Co Coffee country house café in Drymen, just outside Glasgow and it promises to be an fascinating evening of coffee exploration.

Alfie & Co Coffee Roasters Experience Nights are more than just events, they're a celebration of coffee culture, a journey of discovery, and a testament to the craftsmanship that goes into every cup.
