Winter Classes in Session

Screen Shot 2013-12-06 at 2.37.49 PM

Our winter courses are still going strong! Many of our Holiday courses have filled up to capacity (including Holiday Baking, and Kids Holiday Cookies) but we still have two classes with open seats left to fill!

Exquisite Coffee – Espresso

Sunday 12/15, 5-7 (limit 5 people)

Whether you have an espresso machine at home, or just really appreciate fine espresso, this class will satisfy your “need to know”. Learn from one of Santa Cruz’ most skilled and knowledgeable competitive baristas, and try your hand at pulling shots and frothing up that perfect micro-foam in your milk.

Holiday Cookies

Sunday 12/22, 6:30-8:30 pm
Join us for a cozy evening of tea and treats at the Bakeshop, and add a few new cookies to your baking repertoire just in time for the Holidays! We’ll make three different types of classic cookies to practice a variety of skills and techniques, as well as discuss gift and packaging ideas. You’ll go home with great recipes, inspiration, and cookies to share!

Sign up for these courses on our online store, here, or in the shop!
