Cuckoo for coffee? You can learn more about a cup of joe at the second annual CoffeeCon at Industry City in Brooklyn — a daylong festival of brewing classes, tasting fêtes and panels and products.
"Coffee is a cooking art similar to craft beer or upscale wine," Kevin Sinnott, CoffeeCon founder, tells The Post. "It is very complex and requires a world of recipes and measuring tools."
You don't have to be a world-class barista to make a stellar cup of coffee. Brooklyn roaster Toby's Estate will be teaching latte art classes so you can learn how to draw tulips, ferns and hearts with steamed milk. Iced-coffee lovers can make their own cool brews at Chemex's roasting classes.
Want to talk about a cup of joe's flavors like a connoisseur? George Howell, a pioneer of the specialty coffee movement, will be hosting tasting classes.
"Coffee can be a very social activity," says Sinnott, author of "The Art and Craft of Coffee." "I've seen someone [at CoffeeCon] nudge a perfect stranger to talk about coffee flavors."
Visitors can also try a luxe beverage from Alpha Dominche's Steampunk, a $15,000 coffee maker that controls water temperature and pressure for a flavorful cup of brew. We'll drink to that!
Saturday, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tickets, $22.50 to $45. 233 37th St., Sunset Park, Brooklyn; Coffee-Con.com.
