Cupping at Market Lane in Prahran

Market lane is a brand of coffee in Melbourne. They have one store in Prahran Market and the other at Queen Victoria market.
Here they do cupping classes from 10am on Thursdays, Fridays and the weekends. This is a great chance to get to know about Melbourne's coffee scene. It is free and it attracts many people from Melbourne and other parts of Australia and the world.
Here you can taste different blends of coffee and the barista shows you how the process is done. First we smell it and then it is brewed for about ten minutes in hot water and broken to get the real sense of flavour. We write down all the smells of the different beans. There you can try all the blends with a special spoon called a cupping spoon. And then you write down what flavours you can taste in each blend/cup and then you decide on which one you like the best and then we talk about it.
If you want to later on you can buy the beans and make the coffee yourself at home
