With a masters in sustainable development, I worked in coffee traceability and tracked the best beans globally whilst based in Africa. My passion for coffee sourcing, roasting and flavour profiling led to the launch of “Chimney Fire Coffee” in 2016. We recently moved our experience from Kingston to our new space in the Surrey Hills.
After an introductory coffee and roastery tour, we’ll watch a green coffee presentation with a Kenyan agronomist to review farming practices, quality processes, and handling of certified coffee before comparing green beans. Next we’ll roast a batch and explore profiles to create the perfect roast. Then it’s time to “cup” the coffee with an aroma kit to identify flavors before making a proper brew.
Be sure to bring a thirst for coffee and warm clothing.

The tour will take place in our coffee roastery, based in a converted stables in the stunning Surrey Hills.
