Home of the Make Good Coffee Co. coffee roastery...


My name is Marc, and I've been blogging about coffee for over ten years.

A few years ago, I realized my dream of opening the Make Good Coffee Co. roastery, providing fresh-roasted coffee to restaurants, cafes, and farmers markets throughout San Diego, California, and shipping throughout the United States.

Online Coffee Tasting Class

We are hosting another online coffee tasting class!

In April 2020, we hosted what we believe was the first online coffee cupping class, from our San Diego roastery.  It was a great success, even catching on with some companies that are using us for team building with their Work From Home employees.  Our next event will have 40 attendees!

Click the image of my face below for an introductory video on how coffee cuppings work. We want you to enjoy the fun and experience of a coffee tasting.  No experience required.  Just show up online for a fun and informative coffee class.  Here’s how it works…

We send you three pre-ground samples before the class, marked A, B, and C.  We also email you the evaluation form you’ll be using to score and evaluate each of the coffees, and provide instructions on what to prepare ahead of time.  No special materials are needed.  If there are certain items you’re missing, we’ll let you know what you can use instead.

At class time, we all meet on Zoom and walk through the steps of a coffee cupping.  When it’s over, you will have scored and evaluated three different coffees.  You will learn how the senses of smell and taste can be developed to understand coffee flavor in more detail.  You will learn something new about coffee! The origin of the three coffees will be revealed at the end of the class.
