So you love coffee. And you can buy one from virtually anywhere. But do you know how the world's favourite beverage gets to you, from farm to table? At The Sundowner, we love doing things from scratch-- this is probably Singapore's first and only coffee roasting experience, where you'll hand-make the freshest, most personal cuppa you'll ever drink!This 1.5hr workshop is designed for casual coffee enthusiasts, to explore the origins and expressions of coffee. Most people simply pop a capsule into a machine. Now you'll get to see a live coffee plant growing on the farm; select and roast raw coffee beans over a fire; grind them up by hand; and experiment with different brewing techniques (Pour-over + Moka). We roast our beans to a light or medium roast that reveals their grassy and tea-like flavours, very different from the caramel / chocolate notes of the ubiquitous dark roast. You'll walk away better appreciating the provenance of your drink, and of course a little happier after enjoying a simple but hard-earned brunch!*Minimum 4 pax to start a session. If the minimum number of participants isn't met, the workshop will be rescheduled.

Min 4 persons requirement:
Please note that this experience require a minimum of 4 persons to proceed. You may book for fewer than 4 persons, but if there are fewer than 4 persons booked for the date, you may be asked to reschedule to another date.
Suitable For: Backpackers, Vegetarians, Vegans, Foodies, Solo Travellers, Couples, Pet-Friendly, Team Events

Edmil was very informative, friendly, and kind during the whole session. I wasn't expecting to learn so much about coffee, it really change and boarded my perspective. We also learned how to brew the coffee beans we roasted at home. The interior of the house was amazing, we had a tour around and learned so much more than coffee. I am very inspired by their love for the environment and nature as well. Would go back for more session at The Sundowner Nature Experience Centre. Great place if you're looking for an aesthetic/interesting place to expand your broaden your experience.

Overall a really fun trip. The boats were well maintained and rather confortable. The route was quire interesting and we were allowed some free and easy time in the mangroves. Guides were really friendly. Really enjoyed the part where they started cooking the food on the kayak itself! The taste of the food could be better but I didn't expect that much from a camping meal.

Sam and Benita were incredibly warm and welcoming! They took the time to get to know people, they were great with the kids in the class, they kept everyone involved and in high spirits. Their energy was infectious and made the class fun from the get go! The pizzas were fun to make, the process was a fun challenge that all of us, of all ages, had a blast! And eating it was great too! The pace of the class isn’t too fast to keep up, it’s not too slow that it feels like a drag, it’s the perfect amount to comfortably go through the entire experience and enjoy every minute of it. Can’t thank the 2 of them enough for making this experience special. My fiancé was nervous going in as she’s a bit introverted but she warmed up (pun very much intended) quickly and got into the mood, laughing and joking with our amazing teachers!

This is a truly unique and unexpected experience. Love the urban rooftop farm, the apiary and sunset cocktails. Great for families looking to do something different in the East.
