Welcome to Home Brewing


Why We Have Moved To An Online Platform

We have previously taught our Home Brewing and Home Barista courses in-person but due to COVID-19 we have decided to move our courses to this online platform. This is due to physical distancing measures that we would have to take and for sanitary reasons (we would have to sanitize all the equipment between each student and instructor).

With our online courses you are still getting the same great instructors (Graham and Mila) with assistance through the discussion panel (ask all your coffee questions there and we will answer them promptly), course content for you to download and print, and if you selected the "The Course With Some Coffee" you will be getting trusted Monigram coffee to work with as you follow along with us.


Owner / Head Roaster

Graham Braun

Graham took his coffee hobby way too far. When it got to the point of a propane fired drum roaster in his basement (perhaps not to code) and a desire to escape the office life, he joined his wife Monica to open Monigram (Monica and Graham, get it?). For 8 years he’s roasted commercially. As a mechanical engineer, the concepts of experimental design and repeatable processes came naturally. He described his ultimate job goal as “Roast and Host” and now he’s achieved it.
