CAFÉ KITSUNÉ VERTBOIS WORKSHOPS
CAFÉ CULTURE // CULTURE OF SHARING
WELCOME TO THE CAFÉ KITSUNÉ VERTBOIS WORKSHOPS
Opened a few months ago, Café Kitsuné Vertbois is the only Café Kitsuné address in Europe to possess its own roasting atelier. From June 2021, it will also be the only one in the world to offer themed workshops dedicated to coffee culture, open to both connoisseurs and amateurs. The greatest passions are those that are shared… The launch of the Café Kitsuné Vertbois Coffee Workshops today makes perfect sense.
An invitation to travel the world of speciality coffee
Departure is imminent from the beginning of June, every Saturday, with a journey in 4 stages (to be organised according to participants’ desires) to discover the fascinating world of speciality coffee. The Workshops led by Florian Decousser, artisan roaster at the Café Kitsuné Vertbois, are limited to 3, 4 or 6 people, for a completely personalized experience.
All facets of speciality coffees are covered, from cultivation to transformation through the magic of roasting, and to the extraction of coffee in espresso as well as in the gentle ethods. Throughout these 4 workshops, the idea is for you to become a true connoisseur, to share and discover which style of coffee you like best. All this within the welcoming atmosphere of the Café Kitsuné Vertbois.
Workshop #1 – From fruit to cup
An initiatory journey to the very sources of coffee, bringing every sense to life Destination: the four corners of the world, to discover the different production regions: from plantations, cultivation methods, domains and specificities to the choice of vintages and selection of beans… An opportunity to go behind the scenes of sourcing according to Café Kitsuné. Then it’s time to get hands-on with live roasting and coffee preparation using the legendary V60, the Japanese manual brewing method so popular with lovers of gentle extraction.

Workshop #2 – 3 coffees, 3 domains
How to become a true connoisseur? By learning the secrets of “cupping” or the art of degustation: how to prepare a tasting, work on your perception of taste, refine your palate and develop your sensitivity… Put all this into practice with 3 speciality Arabica grands crus coffees from different origins, in an opportunity to become familiar with their domains and their aromatic profile but also how to comprehend their specificities.
