This informal talk will address the rise of specialty coffee production and culture in Southeast Asia with a particular focus on Vietnam, Thailand, Laos, Philippines, and Myanmar. Although this region has received increasing media attention from coffee trade magazines, blogs, and social media spaces there is still a general lack of knowledge about these origins in the specialty coffee community. By discussing the complex coffee histories of these places, the tension between commodity coffee and specialty coffee, and emerging local coffee practices that draw on U.S., European, and East Asian specialty coffee culture, this talk will hopefully create dialogue about these underrepresented origins and why they matter for producers and consumers alike.
Do you wish you could brew better coffee at home? This is an introductory class focused on teaching the importance of water filtration, grinders, scales, extraction, & brew ratio.

When you are finished with the workshop you will be able to talk shop with your favorite barista and know how much really goes into your favorite latte.
