What you'll do
The workshop will start with an introduction to the History of Coffee. From the legendary goat that discovered coffee in Ethiopia to the first coffee shop A cup of coffee is the result of 3 characters: the farmer, the roaster, and the barista. We will have a glimpse of the coffee journey from bean to cup (i.e. the coffee tree, fruit, and the process). After this quick introduction, we will explore the importance and impact 'roasting' has on the quality of the coffee and what differentiate specialty coffee. In order to develop your coffee, we will perform a "cupping" - Cupping is a professional procedure used to taste and assess coffee. It provides a consistent approach for evaluating a coffee's quality. This tasting will widen your horizon on what is your preferences and how coffee from different countries differs. The second part of the workshop will be focused on the barista's role. I will introduce different different methods of home brewing and teach you how to make coffee like a pro by sharing you all the explaining and science behind. Finally, we will end up with a short Q&A session where I will make sure you have all the tools and knowledge you need to make excellent coffee at home.

After graduating in in Energy Engineering, I’ve started to travel a lot. While visiting Panama, Colombia, and Brazil, I learned about coffee farm culture and worked as a barista. The socializing and scientific aspect of coffee attracted me. Hence, I wanted to connect the drinkers with the farmers and launched Coffee Origins Travel, the first travel agency tailored for coffee lovers in coffee regions with local experiences. Moved to London, UK in 2015, I introduced specialty coffee via workshops to every coffee drinker to share passion integrity, quality, education and awareness. Achieved 3rd at the UK Aeropress Championship 2018 and Semi-finalist at Cup Tasting 2019, I emphasize the quality of all the coffees I make and experience I host. Based in Houston, I started to roast my own coffee and share my vision with every coffee drinker.
We will taste 5 coffees during the cupping and 3 more during the brewing process
