    We booked this experience after hearing about it from a friend- it was the perfect way to spend a Saturday morning in london. Naomi was very knowledgable and answered our (many!) questions. The coffee was delicious and we both learnt a lot- a great daytime date activity!

    We did the workshop yesterday and really enjoyed it. It was really interesting to see the special machine for roasting the coffee shop uses and also find out a lot of details about coffee. Naomi was brilliant super nice and engaging. One improvement to the experience would be getting people more involved-e. g go behind the bar and pretend to be a barista and make a coffee for each other. Anyways we loved it so much we have bought it as a gift for our grandparents! Recommend it and look forward to the espresso martini potential class!

    Naomi Gardner is a force of nature and my experience at Roasting Plant’s South Molton Street store coffee tasting was truly a once-in-a-lifetime moment. No doubt, the coffee is world class, but it’s this indomitable Woman that enhances the experience so profoundly. Naomi’s knowledge, her passion and her ability to translate that into a learning and experiential journey is every coffee disciples nirvana. If you’re considering whether to attend this, get over yourself, BOOK IMMEDIATELY!
