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.

Your participation in this experience supports De la Gente's efforts to improve the quality of life of coffee farming communities in Guatemala. A portion of the fee covers the cost of the workshop's preparation and, the remaining part is invested is other DLG programs allowing us to further our mission.

COFFEE CUPPING & BREWING:

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. Afterward 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.
