We know enough about coffees flavour to develop a simple method for making systematic evaluation. This part of the 3 day course offers a method for explaining and describing the effects of the basic stimulation in the palate of coffee’s aroma, taste and body.


During the course we will cover the following topics:

Olfactory – classifying aromatic compounds according to source
Retro nasal aroma
Aromatic Profiles
Coffee taste sensations

All participants will be required to wear close toed shoes and sleeved shirts or tops! The course will be conducted on a 1 kilo Probatino Gas Roaster. This is a group session with a maximum of 8 people per class.

We recommend that this course is suitable for those people who have had no previous experience working on a coffee roaster.
