Coffee has a history that stretches back hundreds of years and we will trace the journey of this bean through history, look at the various varieties that are grown to produce the blends we know and love, and the examine each step of the physical journey from the tree to the cup.
Don’t worry that it’s just learning, on this course it’s more important that you can recognise the tastes behind the theories. Cupping is how the professionals taste and assess coffee, and by the end of the day you will have learnt how to taste coffee properly, allowing you to taste the variety of flavours from around the world.
At the end of the course you will have learnt about the theory of coffee, and even better you will leave with the skills to brew a great cup of coffee at home, for you and your family and friends, and not just one or two drinks, instead you will be able to prepare the range of drinks commonly found on a menu.
The coffees we discuss and taste may be from foreign climes, but we are home grown and local. Perfectly situated for Glasgow and Edinburgh we offer coffee and barista training. Our Academy is located in Livingston, West Lothian, although we can tailor courses to your location.
