Lamill Coffee, the first-floor cafe in the Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore, will be hosting a four-week series of free Saturday morning coffee clinics in January. The free, weekly sessions will highlight coffee extraction methods and coffee roasts. The Lamill team will sample food pairings with the coffee.
Lamill is Michael Mina's collaboration with a super-cool Los Angeles-area coffee roaster and retailer. The clinics will introduce guests to the ingenious Hario V60 hand-drip process from Japan and the super sleep Eva Solo from Denmark. Some of the coffee devices Lamill uses in its Four Seasons location look like something right out of Ten Forward.
Each session will show off one of Lamill's single-estate or otherwise rare roasts like Kenya Gethumbwini and Panama Birdsong Honey. The staff will pair the coffees with sweet and savory treats like hand-cut beignets with Meyer lemon-curd sauce and Nutella, chocolate and sea salt pop pies.
The Lamill coffee clinics start at 10 a.m. for four Saturdays beginning on Jan. 14
