Our classes are run by the same lovely professionals who source, roast, and brew your coffee at Market Lane. Offerings will change throughout the year, so keep an eye out for more dates and classes. Bookings are done online, and spots fill up fast, so get in quick! If you have any questions, please contact us at email@example.com.
See you in the café/classroom soon!
Coffee Class - Brew Classes
In this hands-on class, we will learn about three brew methods: pour over, aeropress, and plunger. Our team will demonstrate how to control different factors in the process (such as grind, time, and brew ratio) to get the best result in the cup.
Maximum number of places: four.
Coffee Class - Introduction To Sample Roasting
This class is a great way to learn more about the art of roasting coffee and actually have a go at roasting some yourself! Spend time with Market Lane's expert roasting team, and learn about the basics of heat transfer, the importance of airflow, and the impact of roast level on the final cup. You will get the opportunity to roast on our two barrel Probat sample roaster and take home your roasted goodies! Strictly limited to three places, please do not hesitate to contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you have any questions about this course.
Cupping ClassesCoffee cuppings, or tastings, are a great way to compare coffees side by side, and develop your coffee palate. Typically, we put 6-8 coffees on the table. We taste them blind (meaning that we do not know until the end which coffee is which). The session starts with an assessment of the aroma (both dry and wet), and then the fun bit: the slurping and spitting! The team will guide you through the evaluation, explaining what to look for in the cup and how to assess and score the coffees.
Public Cupping Sessions
We hold public cuppings at Market Lane Prahran every Friday and Saturday from 10am to 11am. These sessions are free, and there is no need to book - all you have to do is turn up! We limit these sessions to a max of 5 people, so to avoid disappointment, we recommend you arrive 5-10 minutes beforehand and let the staff know that you'r interested in cupping that day to ensure your place in the session.
Please note the public cupping sessions are limited to six people so if you have a big group of people (i.e. more than 2 of you) we do recommend that you email us to organise an alternative time for a private group cupping.
Private Group Cupping Sessions
Got a group of people wanting to do a coffee tasting? We are more than happy to host private coffee cuppings for groups of four or more.
