Machine understanding

Course information

This practical-oriented course is intended for participants who want precise knowledge on how to correctly configure a fully automatic machine. Theoretical knowledge will be taught and the opportunity will be provided to implement the knowledge learned in a hands-on setting.

Course content

Optimally setting a coffee machine and selecting the parameters presents both options and challenges. In this course, the procedure of configuring a coffee machine is explained. Furthermore, participants will practise on a fully automatic machine in a hands-on setting.

Participants will learn how the grinding level is set correctly, how the operator can change the temperature, etc. At the same time, the process of tasting and quality-checking the beverage is demonstrated and practised hands-on. Machine care and service tips are also a part of this well-rounded and exciting course.
