What you'll do

Experience coffees from Kenya to Kingston

After an introductory coffee and roastery tour, we’ll watch a green coffee presentation with a Kenyan agronomist to review farming practices, quality processes, and handling of certified coffee before comparing green beans. Next we’ll roast a batch and explore profiles to create the perfect roast. Then it’s time to “cup” the coffee with an aroma kit to identify flavors before making a proper brew.

With a masters in sustainable development, I worked in coffee traceability and tracked the best beans globally whilst based in Africa. My passion for coffee sourcing, roasting and flavour profiling led to the launch of “Chimney Fire Coffee” in 2016. We recently moved our experience from Kingston to our new space in the Surrey Hills.

An enjoyable few hours spent learning about the subtleties of coffee beans and roasting techniques. Dan really knew his stuff and an opportunity to taste various coffees and discuss the preparation methods to get the best out of the coffee beans.

Booked as an alternative Christmas present. Super impressed, and great to learn more about the art of coffee making. Good atmosphere and, at the end, a choice of your favourite coffee to take home. Fun, very informative and even managed to become a taste test champion. Thanks to Dan I am now a coffee roasting apprentice (Well, I'd like to think so anyway). I hope you will enjoy this unique experience as much as we did. Just goes to show that amazing start up businesses are happening so close to home. This really is from bean to cup and so much more. Great stories, smells, tastes and a chance to learn something new on a Sunday morning !!!

This was a brilliant experience. I learnt a huge amount about the whole coffee process (literally beam to cup!). It was fun, relaxed and very down to earth which was great. It was also really nice to try several different coffees and the blind taste at the end was good fun. I really recommend this to anyone who loves coffee.

Excellent morning at Chimney Fire Coffee - would definitely recommend to anyone interested in proper coffee. Tasting the 4 different coffees makes me realise I'm definitely doing something wrong at home!
