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. 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 "cup" coffee like professionals and have the opportunity to see a brand new roastery! The 3,5 hours tour will start at 11am and end around 2:30pm.
