Coffee Cuppings at Woodberry Kitchen
Every Friday morning at 10:00 a.m., Timothy Anderson, Woodberry Kitchenâ€™s resident barista,Â and fellow barista Jade Sterle guide coffee geeks and wannabes through the fine art of coffee cupping. â€śIf youâ€™re looking to geek out with people over coffee thatâ€™s what we do,â€ť Anderson says. Similar to a wine tasting, and only slightly less intoxicating, participants taste and smell three different coffees at various stages, from grind to break to brew, with Anderson and Sterle demonstrating the proper way to â€śslurpâ€ť (yes, thatâ€™s a technical term) and evaluate qualities like brightness and body.
Itâ€™s serious business done in an eminently approachable way. And itâ€™s free. Go forth and slurp. 2010 Clipper Park Rd., (410) 464-8000, woodberrykitchen.com.
