Time for a First Crack

It's a coffee roasting joke.  Don't worry about it now - by the end of your time with us you'll understand ...even if you don't find it funny!

The CounterRoasting Experience

Maybe you're looking for a different kind of present for someone.  Maybe you've got a bucket list of things you want to do.  Maybe you're thinking of setting up as a roaster yourself.  Maybe you fancy some fresh coffee.

Over the course of a few hours, and on a 1:1 basis, we'll talk about the various types of green coffee there is out there, walk you through the roasting process on our own off-axis Gene Cafe CBR-1200 roaster, discuss roast styles and blending, and then get you to do a sample roast of your own, by yourself but under supervision.


Course Location: CounterRoast Roast HQ

Course Duration: 2-2.5 hours (9.30am or 12.30pm start)

Material: Pre-Course Book & Course Manual


We're very happy to provide plenty of cups of coffee during the course.  Due to space restrictions, we can only provide the experience for 2 people at a time.

Course Booking & Payment

If you drop us an email at firstcrack@counterroast.co.uk with your preferred dates/times then we'll confirm back with you and you can finalise the booking using the pay button below.


The cost of the course is £95.


Once the booking and payment are made, the course fee will only be refunded if CounterRoast cannot give the course.


The Réveillez Blend is a dark roast that is smooth with a full body and excellent aroma.  It makes a sensational espresso but is also sufficiently versatile to stand out very boldly under French press preparation.
