Want to learn more about making great espresso in the home, and you live in or near Portland, Oregon?
Clive Coffee offers great 2 hour immersion, hands on classes for the home barista at their showroom. In the class you'll learn the very basics of pulling espresso and milk steaming. You will be taught how to effectively dial in your grind, as well as how to dose and tamp correctly so you can learn to pull great shots at home. In addition, milk steaming and machine maintenance will be lightly touched upon.
A very hands on class, and small - they limit their class size to 2 to 4 people to make sure everyone gets fully involved. And they include, at no extra charge, a copy of their $12 Guide to Espresso book.
