I had a great opportunity the other day to attend a Coffee 101 class at a place that sells the best coffee. New Mexico Pinon coffee is a local owned coffee roaster in Albuquerque, New Mexico. New Mexico Pinon coffee sells a unique great tasting coffee made with pinon nuts, a edible pine nut that comes from the pinon trees of New Mexico mountain forests. The pinon nut adds a wonderful taste to the coffee, once you try it you will be in love with this coffee. I send the New Mexico Pinon coffee to all my relatives for Christmas and it is their most favorite gift.
Coffee 101 is described as "The Ultimate Coffee Tasting Experience" and was a fun 2 hour class that includes:
Cupping (The practice of experiencing the tastes & aromas of brewed coffee.)
Roasting (You’ll learn the different roasting terms and get to participate in actual coffee roasting.)
Fun Facts about coffee and its history
A 25% discount towards any purchase at their retail store the day of your class.
A FREE gift with your seminar attendance. (Hint-the gift involves coffee)
The coffee 101 class is held at the place where they roast and produce their wonderful coffee. It is a small class for 12 people, so everyone will get their questions asked. The class starts out in a room with coffee beans to look at on the table. Then you will be able to see the coffee beans getting roasted. The class will conclude with coffee tasting and learning about where coffee comes from.
The first two are raw coffee beans and the others are coffee beans that have been roasted at different stages.
This is the coffee roaster that they heat up to 400 degrees to roast the coffee beans. The beans are roasted and when done they are stirred around to be cooled down.
These are some of the big bins filled with coffee beans that have been roasted. These coffee beans will be hand packaged to be sold.
New Mexico Pinon coffee is sold in New Mexico as well as in stores like Costco, World Market, Amazon, and online at http://nmpinoncoffee.com/ They sell their wonderful Pinon coffee along with many other wonderful flavors like chocolate and vanilla to name a few. They even made a bacon flavor coffee for a local Bacon Fest event.
