Awaken your senses and prepare yourself for the ultimate coffee experience…
The House of Coffee & Co. is a new multi-sensory coffee event created by the London Coffee Festival that will take you on a voyage of discovery through five different galleries designed to represent the coffee bean’s journey from crop to cup.
Gallery 1: Coffee Origins
You begin your journey by meeting green bean importers who will present coffee from different origins, explaining the processes used to dry the beans and how these can affect the coffee. You’ll also find out about the coffee farmers themselves and direct sourcing.
Gallery 2: Roasting and Cupping
Continue into Gallery 2 to experience live roasting, learning about different roast profiles and how they impact the taste of coffee. You'll also be able to cup a variety of coffees from across the globe in hands-on cupping sessions using your own cupping spoon that you will receive upon arrival.
Gallery 3: Coffee and Food Pairing
Next, enter a café environment to discover the ideal food partners for different coffees. Enjoy this gastronomical experience as you taste and explore a selection of coffees to determine how best to pair them with an assortment of fruit, chocolate, cheese and baked goods.
Gallery 4: Brewing
Move into Gallery 4 to learn about the art of brewing and the types of coffee best for each method. Discover how to make the perfect cup of coffee using various brewing methods including the chemex, cafetiere, V60 and aeropress.
Gallery 5: Understanding Taste
As you arrive at the final stage of your journey, you'll be invited to explore taste profiles - not just those of coffee - but of wine, cheese, spirits and chocolate, as you learn to understand the similarities that exist when tasting different food and drink, training your palate to better appreciate taste and flavour.
