Event description

Description

The Wilderness Brewing Sessions are about creating a space to explore specialty coffee in the great outdoors.

From curious minds to specialty coffee enthusiasts, the Sessions are perfect seasoned explorers and urban cafe dwellers alike.

Our October Session takes us up to Mount Donna Buang for a walk along the ridge towards Mt Victoria. This event is strictly limited to 6 spaces!

This months feature roaster is Rothrock Coffee. Our first International Feature Roaster, Rothrock hail from State College, Pennsylvania next to the beautiful Rothrock State Forest; an epic location for mountain bikers and hikers! Avid supports of relationship coffee / trade and outdoor brewing, they're a perfect fit for this months Session!

We'll be meeting at 9am in the Mt Donna Buang overflow car park (just south of the summit before the last ascent to the tower car park). From here we'll take the walking track along the ridge towards Mt Victoria. This is a gentle walk through a stunning fern and eucalypt forest where we'll find the perfect spot to gather around and enjoy the coffee. We expect the Session to run for approx 4hrs by the time we return to the cars.

The format of these Sessions is an informal, chilled out experience where multiple coffees from different regions will be brewed to try. For those new to coffee, there will be plenty of opportunity to learn, ask questions, and brew yourself using the equipment provided.
