Introduction to the topic of green coffee and preparation

Module information

In this course module, we guide you through the fascinating world of coffee in its place of origin. It is intended for participants who would like to get an initial overview of coffee in the countries where it is grown. We show you the path the coffee takes, from the flower to the green bean that is ready for shipping. Information on coffee varieties, preparation types and current market data round out the module.

Module contents

In this introductory module, we begin with an overview of the coffee types, the coffee-growing areas and the most important coffee-growing countries and supplement this information with several market figures. The growing, harvesting and preparation methods are illustrated using numerous images, explained and experienced by the senses with a “cupping” (coffee testing). 

In addition, we take a look at the quality control in the country of origin and the storage until the green coffee bean is filled for transport.
