Come join us on a fascinating journey to discover how varying brewing methods change the taste of the coffee; seriously!  All at one of the UK’s very few highest-quality artisan roasteries.

Learn how the V60, Stove top (Bialeti), Chemex and Aeropress used with the same beans, all produce a different cup of coffee. 

An immersive, exciting,  hands-on experience covering how water temperature, extraction time, grind size, and a whole bunch of other factors can drastically affect the final cup and we’ll explore how simple and effective changes can enhance the flavour. 

This experience will cover everything you need to know about treating your beans right and brewing fantastic coffee at home. You’ll learn how to set up brew recipes for individual coffees, detect if something isn’t quite right and what you’ll need to change to fix it. As well as the principles of brewing, there’ll be lots of tips, tricks and useful advice for getting consistently great results no matter your preferred beans or brew style.

After an introductory welcome cup of coffee, guests will discover how we create different roasting profiles, then it’s time to start brewing, tasting, assessing and tweaking how to get the best flavours and your coffee preferences.

A minimum of four brew styles will be covered during the experience, and small snacks will be provided to soak up the caffeine! Warm clothing and comfortable shoes are advisable.

About Your Host; Owner and Coffee Whisperer, Ricardo

Ricardo's love for coffee started where coffee grows, in a remote Colombian region named Huila. He grew up on his grandparents' estate and fondly remembers the coffee plantations blooming, dressed in white, with scents of jasmine and his grandmother using a copper pot to roast. 

Today in the United Kingdom and with more than 15 years of speciality coffee experience under his belt, his passion and mastery is to cure the best green coffee beans in the market, roast them to bring out the most prominent flavours of each origin and delight the British public and far beyond with these exceptional beans.
