At Ceremony, we love coming together with our guests and partners to build our knowledge about coffee.

Ceremony's events are held at our Cafes, Workshops, and Roastery in Annapolis, Baltimore, and Washington DC.

Our Weekly Coffee Breaks are completely free of charge and take place from 11am-12pm every Thursday in Washington DC (1228 31st St NW), and from 12pm-1pm every Saturday in Baltimore (520 Park Ave).

Our @Home Class Series are designed for home baristas and incur a small fee. To register, please go to the middle column and click on the link provided for your desired class.

Our Wholesale Labs are complimentary for our wholesale accounts, but we do ask that baristas register so we can ensure there are enough spots. Please sign-up by clicking on Register for the class of your choice. A full rundown of our classes may be found at our Courses webpage by clicking here. If the class you're interested in isn't available (reads: FULL), please contact our trainer by clicking here.

Sensory Skills: A Flavor Workshop - BALTIMORE

Baristas spend a lot of time learning and perfecting the physical behaviors of making coffee, but so often the taste component falls by the wayside. In this class, we'll explore the ins and outs of coffee flavor - how to taste, how to articulate what you've experienced, and where that flavor originates. We'll taste different coffees and solutions, use a microscope to look closer, and even try our hand at flavor pairing. By the end, you'll be a pro at distinguishing between sour and bitter, answering which coffee has more caffeine, and more!
