Það sem verður gert

Coffee is the second most consumed beverage in the world. Loved and addictive, it is also one of the most complex beverages.  In this workshop, we are going to take a journey from the seed to the cup.

The main objective of this workshop Is to introduce you to the world of specialty coffee. The second objective is to learn how to taste, describe and analyze a cup of coffee.

-> The coffee tasting consists of 8 tasting cups on 4 flights for total caffeine content of 2 cups. The coffee will be brewed manually using a pour-over, french press, and siphon. Sweeteners are available.

Flight 1: we will start by tasting 3 different origins side by side where I'll introduce the coffee plant, terroir, and farming practices.

Flight 2: for the next flight, we will taste the same coffee processed in 2 different methods: washed vs. natural. We will also pair them with fruits to enhance some notes.

The second part of the workshop will be focused on coffee making and the sensory experience.

Flight 3: I will introduce 2 different home brewing methods using the same coffee to show how we can modulate the different attributes of a coffee. We will also learn about ratios, grind size, water chemistry, and techniques.

Flight 4: finally, we will end up with the last coffee, brewed on a Syphon and consumed in two different glasses to highlight the importance of the overall coffee experience.

I remember the first coffee I brew at the age of 7 – a dark roasted Turkish coffee. Although this first sip gave me a bitter memory of coffee, sharing it with others added some sweetness to it.
Learned about coffee at the farm in Colombia, I started to work as a barista in Brazil. In the meantime, I obtain my master's degree in thermodynamics in France. I believe that we don’t know what we don’t know. In 2017, I launched a Specialty Coffee Tasting Workshop in London, UK to bring awareness and shed light on what, how, and why Specialty coffee is.

Like you, I am frustrated when my brew doesn't match what I had in the cafe. Hence, experience and sensory became my focus, with hours of SCA training and competitions. Moved to Houston, Texas in 2019, I launched Memli Coffee Lab and proposed an innovative approach to coffee roasting.

Beautiful and excellent experience! Mehmet is full of life, knowledge, passion and intelligence. I am not a coffee drinker but my girlfriend is, it was amazing! So much to learn, so much fun, and so engaging! Highly recommend for both frequent and non-coffee drinkers!

If you are a coffee lover this is a must! Mehmet is very knowledgeable about all things coffee and exceeded my expectations. Came out out of it realizing I knew nothing about coffee before but now feel like I have a better understanding of the creation, history and international differences of coffee. This experience should be happening in each and every city!

Mehmet knows his stuff. He's not only an expert in coffee but also the senses. This was a great all-around experience because he combines show-and-tell with tasting to answer any curiosities you could have had about coffee. Highly recommend.

Mehmet is clearly very passionate about coffee and it made his experience even more enjoyable than expected. Very respectful of everyone’s personal experience and taste profiles and was able to make you feel special by providing some “special” tastes in addition to the standard experience. Would highly recommend for anyone even remotely interested in coffee!

My friends and I booked the experience as a private event and we had such a fantastic time! Mehmet is a wonderful host, made us feel welcome at all times and was very receptive to our all our questions about coffee. He certainly is very passionate about it and it is very inspiring to listen to him talk about coffee, history, evolution of the how and who drinks coffee, economy and importa/exports, types of coffee around the world and then getting to taste all the coffees! I highly recommend this experience, we feel very lucky to have lived and enjoyed this experience. Thanks Mehmet for sharing your passion for coffee with us!

Mehmet is so enthusiastic about coffee that it is inspiring! I learned a lot about how to really TASTE coffee... and I really love coffee so to experience all the nuances of my favorite drink was a fantastic treat. The setting and choices of what and how to serve the specialty coffee is done with a lot of care and knowledge. I highly recommend this experience...
