Workshop Description: 
This workshop caters to both coffee professionals and enthusiasts, focusing on the impact of minerals on coffee flavor profiles. It begins with a brief overview of water quality and mineral composition, using the Lotus Coffee Water Brew Kit. Participants will explore pre and post-water mineralization through tasting sessions, comparing coffees brewed with minerals added before and after brewing.

The session continues with a flight of coffees brewed in distilled water. One reference cup will have no minerals, while others will include various minerals added post-brewing. Through guided analysis, attendees will examine how each mineral affects the coffee's flavor.

Concluding the workshop, participants will apply their new knowledge to create a custom mineralized brew water recipe. Each recipe will be used to brew coffee for a comparative tasting, where attendees or a judging panel will vote on the best brew water. The winner receives a water prize!

Learning Objective:
- Help students understand the importance of having properly mineralized water for coffee.
- Help students understand that a coffee can be post-mineralized and still have a good result.
- Help students know what effect the various minerals have on the flavor profile of filter coffee
- Give students the opportunity to create their own mineral water recipe
- Introduce students to Lotus mineral drops as an effective method of creating water that is good for coffee brewing.
