Colombia is known worldwide for having the best coffee and if you are planning your trip to Cartagena take advantage of this opportunity to try a mini course of coffee roasting and learn about one of the most consumed drink in the world.
This coffee roasting experience at café del mural covers all aspects of the coffee bean along the process done for the preparation of a fresh cup. You will learn 2 methods of roasting: the ancestral form that is still used in the Colombian country side in an artisan way, the traditional way you most likely used to seeing, and finally a recent method that makes the roast appear regular and uniformed. You will never look at coffee the same way after you taste the flavor change between roasts!
The best part of this activity, besides the explanation of each step of the roasting methods, is the fresh cups of coffee we taste after each process to have a better understanding of the phases experienced by the coffee bean during the roast.
Enjoy the day roasting coffee in the beautiful neighborhood of Getsemani to discover the flavors of Colombian coffee. After the activity is done, you will be given your own bag of roasted coffee brand you most enjoyed during the experience.
