An Evening at Devon Coffee

Steve at Devon Coffee in Queen Street Exeter organised an evening of coffee flavoured entertainment for his customers. We were greeted with a freshly made coffee cocktail which got us off to a fine start. The freshly made brownies were lovely too.

From bean to cup
The evening explored the journey a coffee bean makes from green bean to cup. Steve and his staff, friends and guests shared their knowledge of sourcing, roasting and types of beans along with demonstrations of different coffee brewing methods

Alchemy meets coffee
A common thread from roasting to brewing was how important experience and knowledge are in each step of the process.

My favourite part of the evening was Laurent’s demonstration of the coffee siphon. I was too fascinated to take any photos though!

We also had talks on nutrition, the origins of the espresso machine and more besides.

Congratulations too
Steve is now the number one barista in Devon. A title well deserved in our view.
