Put your sensory skills into action and try your hand on home brewing methods!

Familiarize yourself with the art and science of coffee cupping and brewing! Be prepared to sniff, slurp and ignite your taste buds through a learning experience.


First our coffee expert will guide you through a practice of catación (cupping), explaining how coffee quality is evaluated by professionals. Tasting a variety of DLG coffees you will learn how to identify aromas and flavors with the help of the coffee taster’s flavor wheel. Afterwards comes your chance to become a barista in your own kitchen. With our step-by-step assistance you will prepare your coffee using a variety of brew methods, for example French press, pour over, aeropress and more. See how flavor notes and textures change depending on brewing technique and equipment, and decide which one is for you.
