Temple training: Learn more -- and do more -- with coffee

Speaking of coffee, another of this city's premium coffee businesses, Temple Coffee, has announced its coffee class schedule. That's right, there's more to coffee than drinking it and jolting yourself awake on Monday morning.

The courses are quite diverse and range in price from $15 each for espresso tasting and latte art/milk chemistry to $130 for hands-on barrista training. The classes fill up quicky. Here's a link for more information:

I've written about Temple several times, including in 2010 when it earned an astounding 97 point rating from for a small batch coffee called Guatemala Hunapu Antigua Bourbon (the rating meant the coffee sold out quickly, with buyers from across the nation). Most recently, Temple won more national acclaim when it was listed by CNN as one of the country's best small coffee makers. For a slide show related to this honor, go here.

If you want to get into coffee in a deeper way, and maybe enjoy it more, learning from the folks at Temple is a good way to go.
