Coffee workshops: From the cherry to the cup

The coffee expert Alex Kunkel shows the transformation of green, grassy smelling coffee beans into a delicious drink and tells exciting stories about the cultural and economic history of coffee. He reports vividly on the arduous work of raising, harvesting and processing coffee to the raw coffee bean. The roaster knows all this from his visits to a coffee cooperative in Uganda. Finally, coffee is roasted and tasted directly.

For groups from 6 persons (duration approx. 2 hours) the price is 10 € per person.
