What you'll do

The experience will be offered at the El Barrio Hostal, located in the Walled City. We will explain and demonstrate the different methods of making coffee: French Press, Chemex, V60 and Vacuum Siphon. We will share best practices, we will discuss the history of each method, and we will discuss method variations such as Gramaje vs. Water and Grinding Weight so you can decide which method will be your favorite so that you can always enjoy this delicious coffee when you return home.

At the end of the demonstration we will share our feature drink “Kamelia Cafe” with a brief story of who this woman was in the 1610's and why she inspired us to create our drink.

Our "Kamelia Cafe" emerged from combining the typical flavors and aromas of the Colombian region, flavors such as Cinnamon and Panela. However, at the end we will let our participants tp create their own combinations with Cardamom, Roses , Lavender "In our laboratory for the soul" where we will explain the benefits and influence of these flavors and aromas in our state of mind and vibration. This will be an individual journey for each participant.

I love coffee and I love the culture of my native Colombia, where this coffee is grown. In honor of our indigenous Arhuacos we want to offer this delicious coffee grown and picked by the Arhuacos in la Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta. Reaching an altitude of 18,700 feet just 26 miles (42 km) from the Caribbean coast, the Sierra Nevada is one of the world’s highest coastal ranges. La Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta is located on a separate tectonic plate from the Andes. Its unique climate allows for a rich biodiversity that helps the Arhuaca and other natives survive. By offering this coffee, we are supporting the preservation of the Arhuaco tradition and their sanctuary.
