Where coffee specialists and coffee enthusiasts meet
For the people who work at Schaerer, coffee is more than just a job – it’s a passion. This passion is accompanied by a desire for greater knowledge. Knowledge that begins far in advance of the coffee preparation process and goes well beyond coffee machine technology.
Green coffee, roasting, preparation, technology and market trends – we consider each and every facet of coffee and channel our knowledge into new developments and consulting for individual requirements.
In a range of modules that build on each other, the CCC gives you the opportunity to learn about the importance of the various quality factors in coffee preparation.
In addition to this, you will discover more about all the influencing factors in the processing chain as well as how to configure the right parameters and their effects on flavour and quality – all from a professional source.
Courses and services
At the Coffee Competence Centre, our customers and partners get the skills to become coffee experts. In varying, mutually reinforcing modules, they become familiar with the relevant quality and taste factors in coffee production and preparation. Additionally, they learn which parameters affect coffee quality. Whether for novices or for those who are more advanced, our courses are just as varied as a good cup of coffee.
The CCC provides individual support in identifying and selecting the right machine(s) for your coffee operations, training your employees (products, quality and machines) and/or establishing a great working relationship with your coffee roaster.
Together with you, we want to offer high-quality coffee beverages, courtesy of our qualified knowledge on all things around coffee – whether in a café or large-scale operation. The highest coffee quality means satisfied guests.
