COFFEE APPRECIATION MORNING
Saturday 31 April | 9.30am – 1pm
As postgrads we live, breathe and dream ‘coffee’, which is why we have teamed up with Paradox Coffee Roasters to bring you a morning of coffee appreciation. The head roaster will guide you through the process from farming to roasting and share key knowledge about varying coffee grades, roast levels and flavour profiles to give you a robust understanding of coffee tasting in its purest form. The café is keen to wrap up our little coffee enlightenment expedition with a simple, quality, handcrafted lunch. This is a ticketed event for GCAP Members only – $10 + BF* (full cost is $60 per person). Tickets are now available online via this link or at the Student Guild office, located at The Link (G07). Limited spaces available.
