What you'll do

We will visit a coffee roasting facility in the city of Medellin, Colombia, the land of the best coffee in the world! You will get to see the whole process of roasting the coffee as well as the hulling. All of these while a professional coffee roaster is doing the whole process. It's an insiders peak to one of the most fascinating processes in the industry.

We will begin with an introduction to the coffee process and by looking and understanding how it arrives to our coffee roasting facilities. Then we will see where the process starts which is the hulling. Right after this we will proceed to the magic, the roasting! You will get to see how the coffee gets to be transformed throughout the process with very cool close ups to the different stages. Very few people get to see the process so up close and personal and interact with a coffee roasters. We will finish by brewing a cup of coffee and teaching everyone the basics of brewing and how to do it in the best way possible.

This is a great activity for groups and team building.
Other things to note
You wont need to have much but we suggest you drink a cup of coffee while doing the experience.

Hi! We are Damian and Julián, we are baristas and coffee geeks from Colombia, the land of the best coffee in the planet. We work with a Colombian coffee company that has more than 5 years of experience. We produce, nourish and roast coffee from the seed to the cup in a socially and environmentally friendly process.

We firmly believe that growers’ wellbeing is crucial, that is why we work with farmers that have been war victims or that are or have been in a position of vulnerability.

We work with them from the seed to the harvest and post harvest. We empower growers through teamwork and aim to produce the best quality coffee in Colombia. By improving their quality we are able to pay them a better price.

One of very best expierences I have taken on Airbnb. Julian walked us through the roasting process in "How stuff works" fashion. He then covered our favorite brew method. Giving excellent tips. He is clearly passionate about coffee.

Damian did an exceptional job taking us on a journey through the coffee roasting process. It was interactive, super insightful, and the coffee tasted amazing (okay this was his words not mine).

This is a very helpful introductory level class for those that want to understand the bean to cup concept with local insights and a very personalized session. I was able to ask lots of questions, the team was incredibly friendly (as always - it is not my first experience with Urbania) and accommodating. It is a great value session. You also receive a discount code to purchase coffee from their online store which was great!!! Would definitely recommend!!
