I kind of happened upon this experience by accident, but I can’t think of any other person I would have done this with except Norm (formerly…and futurely (?) of The Coffee Foundry). We were brought to the roasting section of DTLA’s Handsome Coffee Roasters location and got a crash course in roasting, brewing, tasting, and knowing different types of coffee. Chris, one of the co-founders of Handsome, was truly an expert in his field and did a great job explaining the intricate details of his job. Amazing. :)
