What you'll do

One of the worlds top online experience, more that 900 five stars reviews

We just got mentioned on Conde Nast Travel, Business Insider and Forbes Mexico!

I am National Coffee Judge and also Airbnb Experiences Community Leader in Mexico City. This experiences combines my 2 biggest passions: coffee and hosting. And I will be still running it for a limited time.

Very few people understand why they like what they like. I think most of us tend to eat and drink out of necessity, doing so in a hurry. I would like to fix that.

We will discuss what's considered a great cup of coffee and why. We will do this by covering some basic concepts about the neuroscience of flavor. Then, we will go through the different processes and ideas on how to brew the best cup of coffee.

Also I believe that coffee is about connection, inspiration, and drive. Some of the biggest changes of humanity have been inspired and fueled by coffee. Now more than ever, we need to connect, share ideas, share joy, and inspiration. I strongly believe that now is the perfect time to share a cup with people from all over the world.

We reserved a private session with Ricardo for our family. Although it was pretty hectic with people participating from several countries and in 2 languages, Ricardo was very gracious and managed to impart important information in a warm, entertaining way. My favourite part was learning about and looking at his life, and feeling a connection with a very good person

My boyfriend and I really enjoyed this barista workshop with Ricardo. It was really interesting to hear Ricardo's story and see his passion for coffee. We tested our perceptions of flavour and learned some basic principles to make a proper great tasting cup of coffee. The atmosphere was friendly and the experiential set up was engaging. We would recommend this to anyone with an interest in coffee with no formal training.
