Here, you can learn about the history of coffee in the Coffee Gallery, including the planting and harvesting process. Watch a live roasting and experience a cupping session to identify flavors and aroma like a master.
Regular cupping sessions are held on Saturdays and require prior registration - check its Facebook page for more details (sinoukcoffeeofficial).
To book a private session, it is recommended to book at least 1 day in advance. Barista courses of varying length, whether for half a day or up to 2 days, are also available to beginner and intermediate. You will learn how to prepare latte art and understand a coffee shop environment.
Onsite, there is also a coffee shop, Café Sinouk, where you can enjoy coffee and food. That makes a good stop on the way to or back from Xiang Khuan (Buddha Park) if you have your own wheels. It is sign posted just past the US Embassy when traveling towards the Friendship Bridge from Vientiane.
