On Saturday, March 11 (and a few other dates throughout the year), Insight Coffee Roasters is offering a free coffee brewing seminar at their shop at 1901 Eighth St., Sacramento. The classes will cover a multitude of variables that come together to create the perfect cup of coffee, including water temperature, grind size, flow rate, proper tools for home brewing, different types of extraction and filtration and more. Insight Coffee Roasters was established in Sacramento in 2011, and they stand behind the belief that care and precision make for the best coffee. Each step of the process is important, from sourcing quality beans to brewing it in a way that emphasizes the coffee’s unique flavor attributes.
