The Bean to Cup Coffee Experience
Throughout the morning, we’ll take you on a tour from bean to cup whilst tasting four different coffees brewed in different ways.
After a welcome coffee, we’ll talk you through the process of coffee growing and production, exploring the many environmental and human factors that go into making your cup of coffee taste the way it does. We’ll also explain the skills behind how coffee is roasted, alongside a sample roast.
Next we’ll learn about the art of brewing and prepare a V60 filter coffee together so you can get the best out of your coffee at home.
The final part of the experience will test your tastebuds! You’ll take part in a coffee cupping session (a coffee slurping session, sort of like wine tasting) – this will be a blind tasting with all four coffees you’ve already tried so you can see if you can pick out which coffee is which!
All participants receive a goodie bag containing a coffee of their choice from the day, plus discounts and more.
What we’ll provide
The tour will take place in our characterful coffee roastery at Denbies Wine Estate, one of the best-known vineyards in the UK. A minimum of four coffees will be brewed via different methods throughout the tour, and a small snack will be provided to soak up the caffeine!
Our roastery is step-free, fully wheelchair accessible, and can be reached either public transport (Dorking station is a 15 minutes walk from us, and takes under an hour from central London) or by bicycle/vehicle with plenty of free parking.
