Best Coffee Experiences You Can Enjoy From Home

I’m definitely someone who will travel for coffee - not just in my city, but across the world. Right now, the latter isn’t really possible. But through the magic of the Internet, we are now able to participate in coffee experiences across the globe from the comfort of our coach.


If the only coffee activity you’ve done in a while is make Dalgona Coffee (the infamous TikTok whipped coffee on everyone’s socials), then read further for a list of the best coffee experiences you can do from home. Note: none of this content is sponsored!


In April, Airbnb announced its implementation of Online Experiences – a way for people to connect to the world & participate in unique activities via Zoom calls.

Hosted across the world and in multiple languages, there are Experiences for tons of different activities and passions, including coffee!

This Experience is the most popular on this list. Ricardo, the host and owner of Borola Café in Mexico City, teaches you how to effectively use your palette to determine flavour, and about the different kinds of brewing processes. The first half of the class is learning to taste, and the second half is brewing your own perfect cup of coffee!

In this Experience, you’ll (virtually) visit a Columbian coffee plantation and get to see the coffee making process first-hand – from being picked as a cherry, to being roasted.
