We offer a 2 hour "Introduction to roasting" class. No, we do not roast you, but coffee! Have you ever wondered what makes coffee great?
In this hands-on 2 hour class, we will first we cup and taste 2 different types of coffees, prepared 2 different ways: espresso and V60, or V60 and French press. This will allow you to get acquainted with each method, and learn the differences between each and their impact on taste, clarity, drink strength.
Then we will learn about the origin of the coffees we have in our roastery, and learn about the different roast profiles (light, medium, dark), and the density of each bean type. We will learn what chemical reactions occur during the roasting, and their impact on the taste of the coffee beans, depending on the profile roast: acidity, sweetness, bitterness.
Finally, we will roast 2 batches of coffee, visualise the roast from start to finish, from green to roasted bean, and see how it develops from a grassy to nutty caramel flavour.
This whole 3 step process will last about 2h-2h30 hours.
What guests say about our experience
"Very personal and informative experience that I can definitely recommend. Sebastien knows A LOT about coffee and was able to explain the whole process - from harvesting to roasting, grinding and drinking - with great detail but also in a very accessible way. He tailored our time together based on our level of knowledge, our interests, and our tastes. We tried multiple kinds of beans in different styles (espresso, French press, etc) and roasted beans, as well. We learned so much we would have loved a handout to take with us to be sure we remembered everything. If you're interested in or enthusiastic about coffee, you should check this out (or at a minimum, stop by R&B for a delicious cup of coffee)"

"I surprised my husband with this intro to roasting class for our wedding anniversary. The roasting class was very interesting and Sebastien was absolutely fantastic host, very knowledgeable and full of useful information. We learned a lot in 2 hours: at what altitude the coffee was grown and why so high, types of coffee, how to roast coffee, different manners for preparing coffee, followed by tasting on site, etc. Sebastien shared his expertise so well that in the end we actually roasted several packs of coffee and they turned out excellent! And the wonderful thing was, that we got a lot of packs of freshly roasted coffee (with our anniversary date) to take home. He tailors the class to your knowledge, so if you have advanced knowledge already or zero knowledge, don’t hesitate and book the class, because he will adjust the info for you. Sebastien also surprised us at the end with a bottle of champagne, which was a really nice gesture. We would recommend his roasting class to anybody!"
