What to bring

Craving for coffee!

Please send us a quick note letting us know how you prepare coffee at home: traditional coffee machine, french press, Italian Moka pot, espresso machine... perhaps you have your own grinder and like to purchase whole beans?

About your hosts

We are your local coffee roasters in the Riviera Maya! Coffee aficionados ourselves, upon arriving in the Mexican Caribbean we were perplexed to find that fresh-roasted coffee is not easy to come by... especially considering that Mexico is home to excellent, specialty-grade organic coffee varieties! Thus, we proudly fresh-roast coffee in a 30-kilo roaster that weighs a half a ton. Our premium and specialty-grade beans are carefully sourced from coffee farms throughout Mexico. The beans arrive fresh, raw and green so that we may lovingly nurture their transformation into freshly-roasted, LIVE coffee goodness.

What else you should know

Perhaps bring a little cash in case you would like to purchase some bags of fresh-roasted coffee to take home. Makes a great souvenir for families and friends!

Review by Jessica

"This coffee tasting experience was truly a highlight of our entire visit to Tulum. AJ shared his amazingly delicious, super-fresh, live Mexican coffee with me and my husband and even inspired me to roast green coffee beans at home. The class was the perfect length, and we tried several different types of coffees and brew methods. Plus, we enjoyed a delicious complimentary pastry while we were waiting to begin. It didn't hurt that the entire experience took place on a shaded deck right on the beach!! Breezy beach + LIVE, fresh-roasted coffee = Heaven! My husband and I both love coffee and we walked away with so much knowledge and a tremendous appreciation for what AJ and Laura are doing at Brew Tulum. This is a MUST-GO experience for anyone visiting Tulum who enjoys coffee! We hope to return someday, and really hope perhaps AJ and Laura will decide to open a coffee shop in the US (preferably St. Louis...come on, Laura! :)" (June 2019)

“Laura and AJ made my boyfriend and I a delicious range of different coffee roasts made with different brewing methods. We were able to try the different styles and honestly some of the devices to make coffee were ones I had never even heard of! It was a fun experience and within seconds you can tell how passionate they both are about their coffee craft, it was truly a special experience that I would 100% recommend anyone visiting Tulum do. Their coffee hands down beats any cup of coffee from any other coffee shop. We were even given a small sample batch from a roast they made to enjoy back home in Toronto!” (Aug 2019)

“I came here for a combination coffee tasting and roasting class. It was exceptional and I learned so much about coffee! The owners were so welcoming and answered all my questions I had about coffee and the process of it. Not only did I get to taste all the different ways of brewing it, but I also got to taste the different varieties of coffee from the regions of Mexico. Then I got to roast my own, grind it and then brew it. What an incredible experience! If there is anything you need to know about coffee, this is your place to come!” (September 2019)

The coffee tasting with Laura and AJ was a really nice experience and we had a lovely afternoon with lot’s of new aspects about coffee we both haven’t known before and a long conversation about all kinds of topics. It was great also getting to know more about the cultural aspects of Mexico! If you

This was so much fun!! Laura tells you a lot about the history of coffee and the different ways it can be prepared. I learned a lot and had a ton of fun! It was just a small intimate group which made it easy to have conversations (May 2019)
