Course Brewing Foundation

The Brewing Foundation training starts with the coffee berry and we follow the path the berry follows from bush to your coffee cup. Next we will discuss in more detail how you can turn the combination of coffee bean and water into a delicious cup of black gold. Which parameters are required for this? And which methods and tools do you use to get the best out of your coffee? We also look at fully automatic machines. How do you set it up so it produces always the same taste of coffee? You’ll learn it all.

For this training, you can apply for the internationally recognized SCA Brewing Foundation certificate.

One day (7 hours). We start at 10 am, we finish at 17 pm.

Erg interessante training en bijzonder hoe Richard zelfs van de theorie ochtend een super interessant verhaal maakt. Erg boeiend en vooral ook belangrijk voor als je iets in de koffie doet!
