As dedicated coffee professionals, we can't help but want to perfect our craft, and help others do the same at home. We have spent a lot of time brewing coffee and coming up with methods that produce amazing results every time. We use the following methods in our coffeehouse and are very proud to now be able to offer these brew guides to our customers online. Our guides are just that, guides, so please feel free to play with coffee to water ratios and grind size to adjust for personal taste.
Every month we offer a 4-class coffee education series at the Noble Coffeehouse. Currently these classes take place Wednesdays from 1:00-3:00 PM. The series is meant to be taken in order at $25/class, and is offered free of charge for our wholesale account partners and their employees. Space is limited, so make sure to reserve your spot in advance.
