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 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.
