Your experience begins when your tour guide picks you up from your accommodation, briefs you on the day’s activities, gives you a water bottle and tour booklet and welcomes you aboard our air-conditioned vehicle. Heading to the first stop on your itinerary in beautiful Noosa, where you’ll meet the crew at First Batch Coffee, before being left in the very capable hands of Crystal and Nathan from the Coffee Training Co.
Specialising in coffee education and training, with a vision to bridge the gap in coffee training, The Coffee Training Co. run regular courses that cater for every level of coffee lover from the passionate home barista to those seeking employment in the industry.
Commencing with a guided tour of their world class roastery, you’ll see where the magic happens, learn about the journey of the humble coffee bean from plantation to processing, and view a live roasting demonstration using their fluid bed air roasting system, one of only seven in the world!
Next, we invite you to indulge in a true sensory experience as you're taken through the fine art of cupping and coffee appreciation. Learn how to identify the unique aroma, acidity, body and flavour in each of their unique brews. You are then welcomed to enjoy a freshly roasted coffee form First Batch Coffee or purchase discounted ingredients and products in their store before we say farewell and head to our second destination.
Staying in Noosa, we head off to the kitchen at Life’s a Feast. Experts in delivering exceptional cooking experiences, classes are designed to increase your culinary skills and food knowledge, and ignite your passion for food, cooking and entertaining.
On arrival you’ll be greeted by owner and cooking teacher Gail, who’s food philosophy is simple: Easy, Impressive, Delicious. Enjoy freshly brewed coffee, tea and freshly baked muffins before Gail takes you on a tour of her home-style cooking space, set up with domestic appliances and equipment, enabling you to feel confident to recreate todays dishes in your own home.
Selecting from options such as Pasta Making & Italian Sauces, Italian Long Lunch, Indonesian Banquet, Easy Asian Dinner Party, Moroccan Magic and Plant-Based for Health & Taste, Gail will step you though the preparation of a selection of sumptuous dishes. Then take off your apron and enjoy the fruits of your labour, feasting on the dishes you’ve just prepared, accompanied by a glass or two of matched wines.
You’ll then collect your folder of recipes, fact sheets and class notes, board our vehicle and head North to picturesque Traveston, and your last destination, Dingo Creek Vineyard.
We finish the day in the stunning Noosa Hinterland with an interactive wine tasting at beautiful Dingo Creek Vineyard. You'll meet owners Doug and Michelle, who'll take you through the history of the vineyard, the story behind their unique wine labels and lead your wine tasting session.
They'll teach you the art of swirl, sniff and sip during a tasting of 6 of their finest wines. To help you remember your experience, you take home your very own, etched Dingo Creek Vineyard wine glass.
