What you'll do

One of the worlds top online experience, more that 900 five stars reviews

We just got mentioned on Conde Nast Travel, Business Insider and Forbes Mexico!

I am National Coffee Judge and also Airbnb Experiences Community Leader in Mexico City. This experiences combines my 2 biggest passions: coffee and hosting. And I will be still running it for a limited time.

Very few people understand why they like what they like. I think most of us tend to eat and drink out of necessity, doing so in a hurry. I would like to fix that.

We will discuss what's considered a great cup of coffee and why. We will do this by covering some basic concepts about the neuroscience of flavor. Then, we will go through the different processes and ideas on how to brew the best cup of coffee.

Also I believe that coffee is about connection, inspiration, and drive. Some of the biggest changes of humanity have been inspired and fueled by coffee. Now more than ever, we need to connect, share ideas, share joy, and inspiration. I strongly believe that now is the perfect time to share a cup with people from all over the world.

I really enjoyed his lesson! He was very organized and knowledgeable. And also he was very interactive with everyone. I am busy mom with 3 kids stacking home in this pandemic but It was so nice to spend time for myself to get to learn what I love in my kitchen with carrying my infant baby😆 I totally recommend this class!

Ricardo was a wonderful host for a company team event. He had creative ways to share his passion and knowledge with our group which resulted in a wonderful cup of coffee! Everyone on my team enjoyed the experience, all-around great job!

This was truly a great experience. Ricardo made the class really interactive and made me feel like I was in Mexico City myself. He had some great insight on different types of coffee and the best type of coffee for the result that you want. I felt as though what he taught to the class was coming from a true expert. Thank you, Ricardo, for the education you provided me with on coffee, I know that I will think more deeply about the coffee I am tasting going forward and will enjoy it immensely more because I understand all the different components.

Wow! That was just amazing. All of us in this experience will be making better coffee starting tomorrow morning! We also learned about what to look for when tasting coffee and how to identify what we love. Ricardo spoke in a very approachable way that was easy to follow. I'm leaving this experience with a better understanding of all flavors - not just coffee. Finally, his presentation was SO well designed. The opening scene, the structure, time for Q&A - it has a flow that was artfully crafted. This guy is a pro! Any experience that he hosts is going to be stellar.

This experience is very interactive, fun, and heartfelt! Aside from Ricardo's deep passion for coffee, I felt SO welcome in his home. I left even more inspired to take things slowly and give more attention to every detail (brewing parameters, acidity, sweetness). Coffee is indeed a practice in meditation, and this is what Ricardo has generously shared (and more!). Highly recommended! :)
