This is a ClassBento virtual Live/Box class! From the comfort of your home, share an artisan experience with your friends, family or colleagues, or enjoy with like-minded others. Here's how it works:

  1. Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft kit containing the materials you'll need. Shipping in the US is free, and it should arrive within 2-4 business days. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. After booking, you'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. At the time of the class, use that link to join. During the class, you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

If you’re worried that your latte game is lagging, this virtual experience on the craft, science, and history of espresso just might be for you.

You don’t need to be an aspiring barista or even a coffee snob to take this one-on-one class from San Francisco’s Sightglass Coffee. You only need access to a home espresso machine and a burning desire to brew a better cup of coffee.

In this one-hour virtual workshop, you’ll learn tried and true techniques for espresso extraction and milk steaming and get honest and helpful feedback from your supportive instructor. You’ll also have ample time for troubleshooting, latte art (i.e. making pretty designs in perfect pockets of foam), and the sampling of your unique caffeinated creations.

Espresso might be best when it’s dark, thick, and murky, but the road to making a truly excellent cup of coffee is reassuringly straightforward. After taking this at-home tutorial, you’ll be pulling perfect shots and topping them off with a froth design worthy of Frasier Crane. More importantly, you’ll never be intimidated by your espresso machine again.

San Francisco's sibling-owned Sightglass Coffee got its start as a rickety service-cart in the SoMa district in 2009. Named for the window on a PROBAT coffee roaster through which java makers of old would watch fresh, green coffee beans brown, crack, and explode with flavor, Sightglass has a simple yet ambitious vision: to share with the community the joy and possibilities of a good, single-sourced cup of joe.

Grant and his fellow Sightglass baristas and expert coffee roasters have dedicated years of their lives to the science of espresso and studying just what goes into a perfect pour-over brew. They love sharing what they've learned with other bean heads, one story, one lovingly pulled shot at a time.
