Our first stop will be Cafe Brioso downtown where we will discuss espresso drinks and learn more about the art of the barista from their talented team. Our second stop will be at the roasting facility at Stauf’s where we will get a behind the scenes look at the art and science of roasting. We will also do a cupping and learn about how coffees are sourced and selected. Our final stop will be at Luck Bros in Grandview to hear from Andy Luck about how to improve your coffee making at home.
We cannot accommodate young children on the van based tours since the van is not equipped to accept children’s car seats but we have had customers who choose to drive themselves and follow the van. The walking tours are approximately three hours long. Parents, who know their children best, should assess the situation individually as to whether the tour is appropriate for their child. Please email us if you have questions.
Tours start promptly so as to stay on schedule and not delay other guests. Please try to arrive 10 minutes before the tour departs.
When you book your ticket, you’ll be given advice on where to park for each individual itinerary.
All ticket sales are non-refundable as the ticket represents a guaranteed space on the tour of your choice. Although it is very rare, we do reserve the right to cancel in cases where minimum enrollment is not met or due to dangerous weather conditions or other adverse circumstances beyond our control. In the case of cancellation, we will refund tickets or reschedule tickets to another date or tour. Otherwise, tours run rain or shine. If you need to reschedule your tour date please let us know as soon as possible - we may be able to reschedule you if space is available on another date. We are unable to reschedule within 7 days of the tour start time. *****If you have dietary restrictions, food allergies or special needs please contact us at 614-440-3177 as soon as you complete your booking so we can do our best to accommodate your needs.*****
Generally, tours occur regardless of weather, but we reserve the right to cancel in the event that weather is severe enough to threaten the safety of our participants.
We are proud to present our Coffee Tour. The format is simple: we’ll visit a roaster to learn about what goes into turning raw coffee beans into something exquisite, a top espresso bar to discuss turning those beans into top quality espresso drinks, and a premier coffee shop to learn about how to get the best from your beans at home. At each stop there will be coffee and snacks, and – most importantly – plenty of information on how to get the best out of home coffee preparation!
