Coffee school

Over years of serving modern coffee in our home city, our barista team in Aarhus have built up a great deal of knowledge and expertise within the world of coffee. One of our great passions here at La Cabra is sharing this experience in a meaningful way; communicating how an alignment of terroir, varietal and process leads to characterful coffees, and how best to unlock this character in the cup.

Coffee Schools provide us with an opportunity to take a break from the busy café environment together, taking an evening to talk about coffee, and leaving you better prepared to get the most out of your coffee experience at home.

The event

This event is focussed on improving your espresso brewing at home as well as steaming creamy milk for espresso based milk drinks. You don’t need to have an espresso machine at home to participate. We start with a brief introduction to our approach to sourcing, roasting and brewing coffee, before moving on to a tasting of several coffees. Here we explain the story behind each coffee and demystify the language used to describe them, so you can always choose the right one for you. Afterwards we move over to the espresso machine, to take participants through the vital steps of preparing an espresso shot – grinding, distributing, tamping and brewing. We give guidance on getting the best out of your equipment and coffee, and taste different espressos together in order to illustrate how different variables affect the final result. There is always flexibility to talk about each participant’s specific setup at home, as well as lots of time for open practice steaming milk and pouring latte art.

This event will take around 2 hours, starting from 19:15. 

It will be held in English.

About us

La Cabra Coffee is a modern coffee company established in Aarhus, Denmark in 2012. Curious about what lay further down the coffee chain, we threw ourselves into sourcing and roasting our own coffee, our own way, in 2013. Part of the advantage of growing in a small town is the lack of external influence, allowing us to forge an honest and novel approach to coffee. This honesty and dedication led to a reputation at home in Aarhus, where a passionate team still runs our coffee bars and bakery.

Attention also began to trickle in from further afield, and today La Cabra is a widely recognised coffee roaster; we are proud to be working with many valued and quality driven wholesale partners to create exceptional coffee experiences in cities across the globe, and with dedicated home users and subscribers in more than 60 countries. Over the past few years we have further expanded our coffee horizons, moving to our new roastery location in Copenhagen, and opening our first international locations in New York, Bangkok and Oman.
