Course content

This diversified course provides you with an introduction to the wonderful world of coffee. Initial basic knowledge on green coffee is taught. This means that we illustrate the route of the coffee from the flower to the green bean that is ready for shipment. In a real-life roasting demonstration, you will then learn more about the process of aroma development and colour change from the green bean to the finished, roasted bean. 

You will find out how the bean is «brought to life» in the coffee brewing process. You will learn about the influencing factors of the grinding and brewing parameters. A brief introduction to the world of the sensory experience is also an integral part of this course. You will discover the many facets of coffee and learn how you can, with attention and care, keep coffee quality at a high level.
