What you'll do

Now is an exciting time for specialty coffee in Brussels, with new cafés emerging and initiatives like the Brussels Coffee Week, it's definitely time to explore what the capital city of Europe has to offer.

I would like to take you to a tour of some of the best places in downtown Brussels and enjoy the city in a caffeinated and unusual way. The coffee scene is small, but definitively worth it! Where to find the best cafés, good practice and what does it mean.

During this tour, we will discover the very heart of Brussels around the Kanal area. Sightseeing through Specialty cafés is always a great idea to enjoy the local vibes.
I will take advantage of us walking through the old district to introduce a little history of the city.

We will have a chat on various topics such as: taste, quality, specialty, labels, roast styles, recipes etc… you will also be able to understand informations from labels on coffee bags and buy coffee more accurately. I’m here to help and hope to bridge the gap between amateurs and professionals.

In order to challenge your taste buds, I will provide one specific sample drink per location at my expense. In the last location, we will tour a micro roastery!

I could not recommend this tour enough. From the very beginning you can feel that Thomas is extremely passionate about coffee and loves sharing his knowledge with other people. He is very enthusiastic, communicative, friendly and made everyone feel welcome. I enjoyed it a lot and feel like I now know more about coffee!

Super chouette expérience au coeur de Bruxelles. Thomas partage sa passion du café et nous transporte dans son univers au travers de 4 établissements qu’il sélectionne avec soin. A faire et à refaire !

Thomas est aussi passionné que passionnant. Il connait parfaitement son sujet et les acteurs du milieu du café de spécialité, qu'il nous permet de rencontrer. Il a aussi quelques anecdotes historiques sur Bruxelles dans la poche, ce qui fait du Coffee Tour une super introduction à la ville également.
