Origin Coffee Roasters’ was one of the original companies involved in kickstarting the “coffee movement” in SA some years ago. Its skilled baristas have perfected the fine art of making a good cup of coffee thanks to the rigorous training programme they undergo. Now, you too, can enlist in one of these short courses to learn what goes into making that perfect cup of joe.
Home Brewing Course
This is the right course for those wanting to get the most out of their daily coffee ritual. Topics covered include coffee theory, a roasting demonstration, a brewing demonstration of the alternative brew methods, and an espresso tasting. The course takes place one Saturday a month, behind the impressive coffee bar at Origin HQ in Hudson Street, and costs R645 for 3 hours.
The Sunday Brews
This is essentially a one-hour powwow that covers every aspect of the industry. There’s a different focus each month, and attendees will get to taste various coffees, while learning about coffee processing and the different coffee varieties. The course takes place one Sunday a month at 10am to 11am and costs R145 per person with a maximum capacity for 12 people.
