The training covers the following:

CUPPING

Cupping is the tasting of different coffee varieties. Such training is aimed at people who want to know more about coffee and gain more experience in the world of smell and taste. It provides an overview of the basics of the field and the effect of altitude, climate, coffee cultivars and preparation methods on the taste. Moreover, you will realise how terrible commercial coffee actually is.

In addition to being an opportunity to learn, cupping is also a pleasant social event where you can get to know the people with whom you share these fresh flavours and feelings.

Cupping usually takes place in groups of 10 and lasts for around an hour. Cupping takes place at our roastery, where you can see how green coffee beans are roasted in addition to tasting our brews.
