Ever wondered how all those fancy third wave coffee shops come up with their crazy, esoteric descriptions of their single origin roasts? Sometimes the tasting notes sound as whacky as wine geek's, but there's method to their madness. And you can learn all about it at Compañía de Café in San Fernando.

Compañía de Café opened earlier this year, bringing great coffee and fantastic Mexican pastries to the Valley. And how they're hoping to elevate the educational element of their gorgeous, Latino-inspired shop. (Seriously, how gorgeous is their azure and white earthenware?)

Tonight's class kicks off a monthly coffee series led by the cafe's Director of Coffee Operations Percy Ramirez. It'll take place from 3-4:30 p.m. on the last Thursday of each month starting tonight, continuing throughout the year.

Capped at six guests total, these intimate classes will focus on the art of coffee cupping—observing the taste and aromas of lightly roasted coffees. Tickets are $10 per person for each 90-minute class.
