Filter Brewing




Welcome to Collingwood Coffee College, the education hub of Proud Mary Coffee Roasters. In our Filter Brewing course we provide you with the knowledge and practical experience to brew filter coffee at home or in the workplace to industry standards. 

In our 2 hour workshop we explore filter brewing using the V60 - a popular manual brewing method used worldwide. Filter Coffee has long been a great method to showcase some of the worlds most rare and exotic coffees and we show you how to bring out the best in your brew. We break down a recipe that can be used to create a consistent result, as well as discussing what types of coffee are best suited to your unique taste preference. 

We examine sensory techniques that can be used when evaluating coffee to ensure you know how to make the right decisions when troubleshooting your brew. During our workshop we will also evaluate the impact of temperature, grind size and agitation.
