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

We are a National Coffee Judge and also Airbnb Experiences Community Leader in Mexico City, and two chemical engineers. This experience combines our 2 biggest passions: coffee and hosting. And we will be still running it for a limited time.

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. Now more than ever, we need to connect, share ideas, share joy, and inspiration. We strongly believe that now is the perfect time to share a

Chris was a wonderful host. Full of life. Decoded many things I was looking for. If you are ever in India my friend, we will surely catch up for a coffee 😃

My wife and I joined Christian on an early Saturday morning for this tasting/brewing masterclass, and we really enjoyed both his hands on, knowledgeable walkthrough as well as his warm hospitality in literally opening up his house and kitchen to us. I definitely learned several key points that should improve the smoothness and balance of many cups of coffee to come. My wife thanks you, my friends thank you, my family thanks you! :) ¡chin chin Christian!

Great and fun experiment with precise instruction. Ricardo was energetic and good at getting everyone involved. Perhaps a chart to show how all the factors are related to each other might be a help to understand the concept.

Christian's exciting & bubbly personality certainly comes through when talking about coffee! This was a wonderful experience, and I had a great time doing this with some coworkers. Couldn't have asked for a better teacher!

Cristian was our coffee expert, and he was super enthusiastic about coffee. He was patient with all of our lack of knowledge and did a great job of training our senses to better understand what a good cup of coffee should taste like. I'm hoping to improve by game with some added inspiration from Cristian - muchas gracias for a wonderful afternoon.
