Next Wave Coffee: Technology and the Way We Drink

Sunday, March 15
11:00AM - 12:00PM

Driskill Hotel
604 Brazos St


For centuries, coffee drinkers have been chasing a better cup using ever-more sophisticated methods. Today, principles of chemistry and physics are informing ultra-high-tech solutions to the problem of how to extract the best flavor from beans. This panel will explore the next wave of innovative coffee gear, from a hardware-software package that uses light to diagnose brewing problems to a brewer that aims to mimic how the human hand pours water over grounds. Plus, we'll explain how people can brew coffee at home that competes with the best from any shop.
