Detailed and thorough introduction to cupping for the main Roastville beans, including both espresso and filter roasts, and blends compared to single origins. Great price to boot.

Roger Rieger Mar 2022

The hour provided a geat insight into how coffee beans are graded and taste-tested - and showed me my ignorant taste buds struggle to identify the fruit and spice notes.

Rene Hartmann Mar 2022

Really good.Learned a lot.Sydney weekender was right about everything they said.Fantastic cafe

Kunal Dugar Feb 2022

Our coffee guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. He answered a bunch of our questions and took us through the whole process nicely.

James Nutt Feb 2022

Really great experience, very informative and interesting.

It’s safe to say I’m a coffee connoisseur now!

Cindy Wong Feb 2022

the class was ok, though it's not so appropriate to taste the same coffee all together and wash the spoons in same cup under the Covid, just an advice.

Philip Pham Feb 2022

Great value for money! George was a great host and very informative. Explained everything in clear detail. Fantastic array of coffee flavours to try and appreciate. Highly recommended!

Jose Rodriguez Feb 2022

My partner and I did this two weeks ago and we’re still talking about it! George was really passionate about coffee and the process behind the greatest tasting beans, plus the coffee was amazing. We learnt so much and are about to buy a subscription from Roastville so we can get their beans delivered each month to replace our existing brand!

Angus Healey Jan 2022

A fantastic and comprehensive run through of coffee farming, origins and bean processes and how that translates to taste.

George is really personable and my son and I really enjoyed it so much.

Amazing value for money too.

Jason Khou Jan 2022

Was a wonderful experience. Gave a great summary of the bean growing, selection and roasting process. The tasting was amazing and has given me a better appreciation of different types of coffee. The cafe itself also had really good vibes and the staff were super friendly! Would highly recommend.

Sandra Dinihan Jan 2022

Very informative.Learnt lots so have more appreciation of what I am drinking.So much to it.

Karin Sasse Jan 2022

Great coffee tasting experience, highly recommend it, we had a lovely time and would come back.

Paige Isley Dec 2021

Great experience and left learning new things! Definitely grab lunch in the cafe before the cupping session, epic food as well! Thank you.

Jordan Brown Dec 2021

Loved it! Wish there were more places doing coffee cupping :)

New or conesur I would highly recommend

James Nguyen Dec 2021

Host was very knowledgeable, I now know how a coffee cupping works, and I found some coffees that I absolutely loved on the day, the West Arsi being my favourite, which to me had notes of blueberries and manuka honey (though the latter could just be me confusing the funkiness of the dry processing together with the caramel note, as manuka honey was not one of the tasting notes on the card). I walked away with a bag of West Arsi and bought a bag of the Pink Bourbon CM downstairs.

Patricia Tatel Nov 2021

Really good experience. Definitely worth it, no matter how familiar or knowledgeable you are with coffee. Would recommend to my friends :)

Susan Andrews Nov 2021

We had a great time, George our host, was informative, passionate & friendly. Obviously loved the job & sharing his knowledge. They say ‘find a job you love, then never work another day’ well that was George. The cupping experience was much better than I thought, I just presumed we would just taste the coffees. Do yourself a favour, spend an hour ‘cupping’ at Roastville with George, something different & fun☕️☕️☕️

Ganesh Bajpe Nov 2021

Good experience. our host George was knowledgeable and friendly. loved the experience and will do different programs.

Matthew Goes Nov 2021

Excellent class, very entertaining, plenty of time to ask lots of questions and learn! A very natural teacher.

Fara Lew Nov 2021

This was such a great experience for my partner and I. Would highly recommend this workshop for anyone, regardless of where you're at in your coffee journey/knowledge! George who facilitated the workshop was engaging and open to answering any and every question that our little group had. My partner and I were honestly amazed at how knowledgeable George is. We also got a bag of our favourite beans at the end! Thank you for having us ☺️

Kerensa Mungkung Nov 2021

Had an absolutely great time. George was amazing and was always great at answering questions we had. We tasted so many different blends and I have a much better idea of what I now like. HIGHLY RECCOMENDED! BRING YOUR FRIENDS! We definitely plan to come back again for food next time round as the rest of the staff were amazing too!

Adi Wibowo Jun 2021

In total, 9 cups are available for tasting, from the mild ones to the tasty one (Pink Bourbon). Really enjoy knowing different varieties of coffee productions and beans.

It was a great class to get to learn about the taste of the coffee. I didn't know about the types of beans that could give a fruity flavour and now I know, which I am glad to have this lesson. One thing that could be improved would be the ways to taste the coffee, I didn't like the idea of sharing the same cups that has all the people spoons mixed in it.

Luke Hong Feb 2020

Awesome class and very knowledgeable teacher!
He shows you a variety of beans and the process of production to grinding, brewing and tasting. This is a very interesting class where you explore the subtle yet very different nuances of flavor

Jessica Beyer Feb 2020

This was such a cool experience, the teacher was so knowledgeable and passionate! We learned so much and really enjoyed this class. Bought some delicious beans after too

Lisa Peterson Feb 2020

What a great experience filled with passion, knowledge and LOTS of coffee! (That can only be great, right?)

I’d recommend if you love coffee, or if you just want to learn about something cool.

Janaka Amarasekera Jan 2020

It was a great experience, we learned a lot more about the journey from growing to cup.

Kateryna Boroviak Jan 2020

Everything were ready for cupping, the teacher George who is the owner is very knowledgeable person and open to answer questions. Really enjoyed the class! Thank you. I hope I can get back to that place because after I had a nice lunch with a fresh coffee.
