Last week, I was invited to attend the first-ever Genuine Thermos Brand Coffee Masterclass. Taking inspiration from the huge success of the ‘Overnight Coffee Challenge’ that took American coffee lovers by storm, I was invited to experience the remarkable heat retention capabilities of Genuine Thermos Brand Stainless King™ Vacuum Insulated Beverage Flasks.
They have partnered with the renowned Prufrock coffee house (in London) to allow for one-on-one engagement with the expert baristas to provide a truly immersive environment for an in-depth introduction to the perfect home brewed coffee and share some insider tips on how to buy better coffee – from decoding coffee bag label information to understanding just how important the quality of the beans really is. Besides that we also learnt how to froth the milk and make espresso! I have no clue in coffee tasting despite drinking a fair bit of coffee! It was a very interesting class from smelling to swirling to sipping the coffee with a loud noise (like eating a bowl of noodles). I am a sweet tooth and normally add a lot of sugar and milk into my coffee. Having to sip it as a black coffee almost killed my tongue! The aroma was great but too bitter to taste after tasting 10 different types of coffee. But it helped me to appreciate the different brands of coffee and where they are from play an important part too!
