Any card-carrying hipster should be able to master the art of the pour-over. But if you've yet to manage parting ways with your Keurig, there's hope yet. World Barista Champion and co-owner of our favorite craft coffee bar Handsome Roasters, Michael Phillips, will be holding three brew classes on Tuesdays in December starting today.

And since it's the season of giving, this could make the perfect holiday gift for your favorite aspiring coffee snob.

Each class comes with a bag of Handsome beans and a kit appropriate for the theme of the class: Chemex and V60s; Aeropress; and French and Clever steepers will each get their own weeks in Phillips' seminars. The Chemex class goes for $65, and the remaining two are $45 due to the cost of materials.

You can reserve your spot in class by emailing the Handsome boys here.
