Superior Merchandise Co. in Troy is bringing back its series of "coffee school" classes for a spring season. Blurbage:

"Over the past 20 months of being in business, we've affirmed that our guests tend to be inquisitive and eager to learn more about the mysterious world of specialty coffee. With Coffee School we are happy to try to clear up some of the myths and mysteries folks have in an informal 'school' format," said SMCo.'s Director of Coffee Matthew Loiacono.
Classes are taught in a loose lecture / taste / participate format, where attendees can shape much of the learning based on questions and desired goals. Tickets include printed notes and 10% off in-store merchandise during the evening of the class.

The slate includes a new class about home roasting coffee:

April 3: Intro to Coffee Tasting 6 pm -- $25

April 10: Advanced Coffee Tasting 6 pm -- $30
("Intro to Tasting" class strongly suggested)

May 1: All Things Aeropress 6:30 pm -- $25 / $50 with Aeropress

May 15: Brew Better at Home 6 pm -- $30

June 5: Intro to Home Roasting 6 pm -- $25
(It's outside on Superior's back patio -- rain date is June 12.)
