On Monday, October 10th, Superior Merchandise Company kicks off its Fall 2016 season of educational coffee classes with Coffee School: Intro to Coffee Tasting.

Lead by SMCo's Director of Coffee Matthew Loiacono, the class will delve into a history of coffee, ideal growing conditions for coffee, general coffee region taste characteristics, how coffee professionals evaluate coffee, an intro to the SCAA taster's wheel and will include a tasting and discussion of three single origin coffees. The 90 minute class will be presented in a loose lecture-style format, interspersed with flash "taste and describe" breaks. 

Class size is limited to 10 and will fill up quickly. Along with printed notes, attendees will take home a sampling of coffee beans tasted at the class as well as a 33 Books Co. brand notebook to record future tasting notes.
