What makes this tour special
“Without my morning coffee I’m just like a dried up piece of roast goat.”
Johann Sebastian Bach
In this beautiful quote, Bach summed up how a lot of us feel about coffee, it is a necessity. However, to Edy Piro, the mastermind behind Terrone Coffee, it is much more. Edy is passionate about all things coffee, from roasting, to brewing to, of course, tasting! That is why it is a pleasure for us to be working with him on a new Original Experience of the World of Coffee. This experience will undoubtedly ignite your love for coffee through showing you the process behind his very own speciality brand, from bean to belly. After this experience, We hope you will have a new appreciation for the subtle delights of coffee and guarantee that you will feel better than a ‘dried up piece of roast goat’.
Your Day With Us
Arrive in in the vibrant and ever changing East London borough of Hackney. Here your will meet Edy Piro, the man synonymous with coffee in the local area and someone who passion and knowledge is as mindboggling as it is absorbing.
After learning a bit more about you, Edy will then whisk you around the local coffee shops in the area while telling you anything you want to know about coffee, seriously, anything! From our time with him we couldn’t find something he didn’t know about.
After hearing about coffee have a chance to go back to Edy’s little coffee workshop where he can give you a low down on how you perfectly transform a soft green bitter bean into a smooth light roasted coffee bean. You will get to make your very own batch with his micro-roaster.
After the roasting is done you can take your bean on to the next stage of its journey. Following Edy’s expert tuition you will learn how to perfectly prepare an exquisite coffee.
Now all of the legwork is done in true Italian style Edy will finish off the day with a flourish. Using your own coffee Edy will teach you the secret to creating the best Latte art, he assures you it is easier than you think.
Finishing off your day with a well-earned coffee you can bid farewell to Edy and his world of coffee, and hopefully he has inspired to savour the flavour of your next ‘pick me up’ morning coffee.
