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.

If you don´t speak Spanish please make sure you are not booking a Spanish only group.

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

We were hosted by Christian and he was such an energetic and passionate person in his sharing of his life and coffee. I've learnt much more about the coffee experience and how to brew a more perfect cuppa!

Even though the experience was online, we were able to get different sensory experiences including taste and smell! :) I had a bitter coffee mixture the first time I tried but after the lesson, I was able to brew a second cup of coffee that I think I won’t add sugar to! My coffee experience will never be the same again, now that I know how to grade a cup. 😂 Definitely hooked!

I hadn't tried the "online airbnb experiences" being a little skeptical about the value provided through only video format. The class was cleverly designed that participants can feel involved through their senses, ingredients are simple and can be found anywhere and Christian was a great storyteller. I would highly recommend trying this experience whether you are curious about coffee or even as a team-building activity for workgroups. Truly fantastic and very informational.

What a wonderful trip to Mexico City! It felt genuinely like we visited Ricardo in his home and got the opportunity to experience new flavor profiles and deepen our knowledge on coffee! We booked this as a private session for company engagement and it was a great opportunity to take a real break from the pandemic and experience something truly novel and have a little fun! Thank you!!!
