MASTERCLASS OF INTRODUCTION TO COFFEE, SENSORY WORKSHOP & TASTING#amateurs #pros #theory #tasting

The “Masterclass of Introduction to Coffee, Sensory Workshop & Tasting” module is the essential foundation module that will allow you to understand coffee and to understand all the links in the chain, during which each actor performs an unsuspected work in order to provide you with quality beans.

From producers to washing stations, from roasters to consumers, how to find your way around and evaluate coffee based on objective quality criteria.

Understand the types of coffee, the types of fermentation, the types of roasting, but also make the difference between commodity coffee, specialty coffee, marketing from the past and contemporary vision of the product. This module will enlighten you on an industry that is still too often in the shadows and yet in full revolution.

Ready, set, grind!
