Led by 2013 World Brewer's Champion James McCarthy, you'll taste four different coffees side-by-side, similar to how professionals taste and evaluate coffees. We’ll send everyone a virtual tasting kit, with 4 unlabeled coffees to brew during your session. James will tell you all about each of the coffees you’ve tasted, including taste profile, roast level & farm location. Slurp, taste, and learn more about all of the coffees. Brew your favorites after the tasting! The Virtual Tasting Kit has coffees, cups and forms for the tasting, along with a grind sample, so you can be confident that your grinder is calibrated correctly before we start. We'll also send four 2 oz bags of each coffee.

What you need to bring to the experience?

  1. Coffee grinder
  2. A kettle (1.2 L)
  3. Two spoons
  4. Two extra cups
  5. No brewer required!

What to expect on the day of experience

James will lead you through a guided coffee tasting. Tasting is the only way to figure out what coffee you like. The tasting kit is designed to help you identify your coffee preferences and learn more about what kind of coffees you enjoy!

Additional Information

Coffee is intrinsically about people. Whether you're gathering for a personal or professional experience, we can tailor the tasting to your group! Use the contact me button below to reach out to us with custom requests.


We highly recommend whole bean for an optimal tasting experience, but if you don't have access to a grinder, we can ship you the coffees ground and vacuum sealed.
We recommend grinding about 10 minutes before the session, but no sooner than that. If you have a hand grinder, it may take a few extra minutes.
Yes! We include 2 Tasting Forms in each kit for 2 people (per screen).
We'll ship it about a week before your scheduled time, so that all households receive fresh coffee just in time for the tasting (with a little bit of buffer). We'll share tracking information as soon as it's shipped.
Please use the contact me button next to the about host and reach out to us.
Unfortunately, this is only available for U.S.-based households at this time.

How it works

On booking confirmation, we will email you a Zoom link with all the details.

The host was great but there were still some technical difficulties that delayed the game. Otherwise, we still had a good time.

It was really fun! Though I suspect that because Carla was not able to submit our answers to the second question in the proper answer field, our score was not added. that's why we ranked last..LOL just kidding :) Overall it was really FUN! Thank you.
