Soo Hee Jang, Director and Trainer of Cooko Culinary & Barista Academy taught us Hand Drip. She used coffee beans from Chelba and Yirgacheffe. It is amazing to know that one coffee bean can taste different depending on the method you use.

First, she used a Kalita Dripper.

Second, she used a Hario Dripper.

Third, she used Clever Dripper. This was our favorite coffee!

And lastly, she used Drip Kettle French Press.

Now, time to make our own coffee! We’re using the Kalita Dripper.

We used 3 different kinds of beans from Brazil, Colombia and Kenya.

Lets grind the coffee beans.
