On Thursday, September 25, San Fernando’s newest coffee destination, Compañía de Café debuts a monthly coffee class from Director of Coffee Operations Percy Ramirez, taking place from 3-4:30 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month and continuing throughout the year. Capped at six guests total, these intimate classes will focus on the art of coffee cupping—observing the taste and aromas of lightly roasted coffees. Tickets are $10 per person for each 90-minute class.
During each class, Ramirez will teach attendees how to identify and describe various coffees based on their inherent properties of acidity, bitterness, and sweetness. Guests will sample a selection of coffees from various regions, exploring their different characteristics through a blind taste test in order to eliminate any preconceived notions of how the coffee should taste or smell. At the end of the class the group will select their favorite coffee, which will be brewed for the guests to enjoy.
Ramirez brings a seasoned barista background to these classes, having held stints at Los Angeles’ Intelligentsia and G&B Coffee. He is a frequent competitor at international barista competitions and is celebrated for his signature style of incorporating novel ingredients and a modern flair into his coffee recipes.
Compañía’s coffee classes serve as part of the cafe’s greater mission: to make high-quality coffee and food accessible to a broader audience, including its often underserved neighborhood in the city of San Fernando. For more information or to sign up for a class, interested parties may call 747.500.7102.
