Classes + Tours
At Lucky Goat, education is one of our top priorities.
Whether you’re a café looking to train a fresh assortment of fellows, or you’re a capable coffee connoisseur looking to improve your morning brew, coffee education is imperative. It’s often the difference between a bitter cup of undifferentiated sludge, and the cup that melts away your daily worries while you stare out of the window. At the end of the day, it certainly is just coffee, but it’s our coffee, and we want to do a darn good job. We hope you do to! Allow us to clarify.
In the past, we’ve given tours of our facility, held discussions related to roasting, and exchanged espresso recipes for latté art strategies. Our classes don’t contain a rubric or a set list of facts. They’re free form, light hearted, and only related to the topics you’re interested in. If no specification is given, we offer a tour, a private tasting of five different single origins, and a conversation on the bean-to-cup story. However, if you just want to learn how an old-timey espresso machine works or what a refractometer is, we’ll refrain from calling you a nerd and get to talking! If this is something you, your friends, or your café is interested in, reach out! We’re more than happy to schedule times that suite you and your lifestyle, just bring us your ears and empty mugs!
We now also offer guided tastings through a flight of hand selected, single origin coffees at our Midtown location. Our baristas will pour you a few samples of each, and afterwards you will be treated to 25% off your next bag of coffee from us! Seating is limited for these events, so book yours today using the link below!
