Book before its sold out

Until November 10th you will be able to see our special Day of the Death Coffee Altar.

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

We are a great option for big groups and team buildings, some of our guests have been: Amazon, Google, Facebook.

Very few people understand why they like what they like. We think most of us tend to eat and drink out of necessity, doing so in a hurry. We 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 we believe that coffee is about connection, inspiration, and drive. Some of the biggest changes of humanity have been inspired and fueled by coffee. We strongly believe that now is the perfect time to share a cup of coffee.

This was my first online "cooking class" from my own kitchen, so everything felt curious and exciting; Christian was equipped with expert knowledge about COFFEE, I was happily surprised by the way he introduced us to our own "taste buds" and how our senses play a huge role in enjoying a cup of coffee; I wish it was a series of lessons instead of just an one hour experience, Christian conveyed his passion clearly -- highly recommend to anyone who wants to dive into the world of AROMA!

Fantastic workshop - would highly recommend for anyone who loves coffee and would like to explore flavours and how to brew the best cup! Christian was a really great host and was able to engage everything, even with some of our attendees being slightly more reversed.

This was a super fun team bonding experience. We all learned so much, even the coffee connoisseurs. Great fun and short & sweet!

I enjoyed Ricardo’s Coffee Masterclass! It was really cool to understand on a deeper level WHAT we like about a good cup of coffee. By trying different foods that are commonly found in a kitchen, we were able to experientially understand acidity, sweetness, balance, harmony, & body. Then of course, we topped it off by brewing our own cup of coffee! I feel like I need more time for all this to sink in, but this is a great Airbnb experience for those who want to be more “mindful” of their coffee drinking experience.

Would highly recommend if you want to learn how to make a great cup of coffee and have any interest in the specialty coffee world. Ricardo is a great host.

I never knew I could learn so much about the human senses to enjoy and appreciate coffee more. I was anticipating making an amazing custom coffee drink, but it turns out we took a simple cup of coffee and turned it into an amazing experience of the senses! Thank you to Ricardo for opening my eyes and showing me how to focus and appreciate my coffee ritual!
