Futher Information

To help you better understand the sensory part of coffee you'll try various food & drink during the first half of the course. This will help you evaluate smell, flavour and texture and how to identify similar qualities in coffee. Then, crucially, you'll discover how the brain identifies these different qualities.

In the second half of the course we'll use all the knowledge we've learnt and put into practice the full cupping protocol and sensory evaluation of coffee with different origins, processes and roasts.
