    The person leading this tasting didn’t know which coffee was which that we tasted and mixed them up multiple times so I left just being confused. She also couldn’t answer any questions we asked about coffee at Starbucks so I feel like this was a waste of money because I don’t even know which beans I tasted first vs second and then got more confused because she didn’t know either and kept saying different things. Wouldn’t come back

    The place was really beautiful open and airy. Thought it was odd we were told to scan code to order when three available looking individuals were just standing by the bar area . Drinks were pretty but not sure there was actually any vodka in our martinis.

    Nice that they are starting to do this. Jess, our guide, was very peppy and kind. Overall this is super basic, not for coffee “snob,” but cute for introduction on coffee interest. Price is exorbitant in my opinion: $45, plus tax plus suggested 20% tip for 30 minutes and trying only 2 coffees. Comes to $115 for 2 people.

    This was such a fun experience! I’ve done many wine tastings, and to do a similar experience with such a well regarded coffee brand was fun and unique. It was really informative and the tasting, pairing with food, and chance to try to recreate the bouquet of scent of the coffees was a fun way to get to be creative as well. Loved that it included some coffees that are only available at this location as well. Would recommend for coffee lovers or anyone looking to learn a little more about coffee.

    We had high expectations for our Starbucks “Brewtender for a day” class, both because it was coming from such an established brand and because it was so expensive. Neither my fiance nor I felt like we learned anything about coffee during the entire experience, and the answers to our questions felt like we weren’t being given thoughtful answers. The person leading the class was really nice, but I’d save your money.

    The barista and the coffee were great! I didn't like how it was just at the coffee bar, made it hard to hear them speaking since there were so many people around. I also think there could've been more coffee samples for the price you pay.

    The experience was very meh, but cool to say I tried it. The ingredients were shared across guests, ingredients ran out, several steps were not prepped ahead of time, and liquors got mixed up. Service was friendly but a bit forgetful in their instructions and process. You can also get the flight with desserts from the regular menu- I’d recommend doing that over the experience so it’s at your own pace and in the company you pick. I definitely recommend going with a friend and not solo- I ended up in a session with only two other people who were on a date - kissing and rubbing on each other the whole time which made for a very awkward experience.

    This was a really fun experience. Bobby, our host was funny and entertaining. The espresso martinis were easy to make. There was good conversation with the other guests around the table (a total of 9 or 10 people). Followed this with a trip to the 102 observatory which was a great way to round out the night!

    I highly recommend this experience! The tasting class walks you through the flavor profiles of the coffee and olive oil separately and then begins to slowly merge the two so that you are able to see how they compliment one another. The Oleato Cold Foam Espresso Martini is….ooh it’s so good! I was fortunate enough to have Cole, or Coleato as his name tag said, walk me through this marvelous tasting experience. He’s knowledgeable and really easy to talk to. Starbucks hit a homerun when they hired him for this role!

    My experience was amazing! The tasting was phenomenal, with each coffee drink tasting better than the other. Also, each drink had its own explanation by the bartender, which made everything much more interesting and enjoyable. Lastly, it was my fiancée’s birthday and they sang “Happy Birthday” to him along with a very nice desert. It was very thoughtful and sweet of the staff. We had a great time there! Highly recommend!

    Being a brewtender for a day was the best I could ask for. Being a previous partner who still bleeds green for Starbucks, I got to nerd out over coffee with ‘Coleato’ and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. This was my first time at a reserve store but I know I will be back at the next opportunity I have.

    We booked the Espresso Martini experience as a birthday event, and it did not disappoint. Cole was an excellent host and instructor, very personable, accommodating, and social. He taught us how to mix our drinks well and kept the experience fun and entertaining. The cocktails were perfect and dessert pairings delicious. The room was cozy with a view through glass of the bakers at work. Overall, I highly recommend. Thank you to Cole for helping to create a memorable birthday celebration.

    Chris led us through an incredible tasting experience unlike anything I have ever done before. The flight of espresso was incredible and he even provided samplings of the unique cold brew and a fun Barbie drink. One of the highlights of my New York trip and will recommend to all that come to the city!
