Ipsento Coffee’s Coffee 101 class is currently on Groupon for $39, which is half the price the Bucktown favorite regularly charges for its two-hour class. Held at Ipsento, the seminar is taught through Coffee Ambassadors and is designed to teach the attendee how to brew at home the same cup of coffee available at Ipsento.
During a hands-on Coffee 101 class, students learn to imitate Ipsento’s precise brewing methods so they can brew barista-quality cups at home. A coffee instructor explains each bean’s journey from tree to cup before letting attendees experiment with different methods of brewing that are easy to replicate at home. The class also covers different varieties of coffee from around the world, and helps students develop their palates and discover which regions and roasts they prefer. Ipsento provides snacks to nibble alongside endless sips of coffee.
Ipsento Coffee is located at 2035 North Western Avenue, Chicago, IL 60647.
