In this fun, hands-on workshop you will actually roast a small batch of coffee. Our introduction to home roasting begins with a delicious coffee of your choice. Then we will examine several popular roasting methods and answer questions on any aspect of the world of coffee. Next, we'll chat about the roasting process and how physical and chemical changes to the coffee bean transform it into a beverage loved by millions. You will have a bird’s-eye view of the roasting process as we put green coffee in an open roaster and observe the changes.

The demonstration roast and aroma of fresh coffee bring the process to life and prepares you for the next segment. You will be guided in the steps to roast coffee using a handheld roaster over an open flame stove. As your session ends you will leave as an accomplished coffee roaster with your personally roasted beans plus a bag of green beans to roast at home.

Armed with your new knowledge you may find it very easy to get started in home roasting because many people have the equipment in their homes or can acquire roasting tools for a few dollars. For those ready to continue their roasting journey, we have starter kits available for a nominal fee.

Other things to note:
This activity is 100% outdoors.
Hosts have been vaccinated.
There may be a dog on premises.

We are two coffee lovers operating an artisan coffee roasting company on the slope of Mt. Tamalpais in beautiful Marin County, California. Dan was born and raised in San Francisco and Donna hails from fabulous New Orleans. We came to coffee roasting out of necessity when a big corporation bought and closed our favorite coffee shop. Attempting to duplicate the lost flavor, we developed a signature blend of coffee over many years and launched the Punto Fino coffee brand in 2020.

As a self-taught roaster, I enhanced my coffee knowledge with the education programs offered by the Specialty Coffee Association and became an SCA-certified roaster. We enjoy meeting coffee enthusiasts and sharing the many roasting methods we have used from a cast-iron skillet to a commercial-style drum roaster.

This was a great Experience and I highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a good cuppa. Dan told us about all his experiments with coffee roasting and was able to show us the best way he has found to do it. To top it all off, this Experience is in a very tranquil, relaxing setting in the hills. You won't regret booking this Experience!

Dan was a wonderful host and the location was fantastic. His knowledge of coffee roasting was terrific. I especially appreciate that he shared some options for novice coffee roasters to attempt roasting at home. The location had spectacular views and the coffee was delicious.

What a fun, unique, and engaging experience!! Dan was a gem and very informative on how he got started in roasting and what the process looked like from a bunch of different approaches and tools and what he found worked best based on what coffee needs to be properly roasted for the best flavor and quality!! With a stunning Mountain View and a very thorough rundown of safety steps and how we were going to be executing our roasting, we had a fabulous time and Dan coached and joked and chatted throughout the experience making it very fun and welcoming!! I think a little more back and forth engagement and a more definitive conclusion would have made the experience perfect as the wrapping ups and good byes felt a little unsure and awkward but those were very very minor and overall this was everything we were hoping for and more and I cannot recommend it enough!!

We had an amazing experience roasting coffee beans for the first time and learning about the intricacies of roasting coffee to experience that perfect cup 😋 Dan is extremely knowledgeable and clearly has a great passion for roasting which is great to see and makes the experience even more enjoyable.

This was a wonderful experience in a beautiful setting. Dan was kind, welcoming and a great storyteller. We enjoyed hearing about his trials and tribulations along the way while he learned how to roast. Roasting our own coffee was so fun and unique.
