Course Content

Our Sensory courses awaken your senses of smell and taste. The foundation course is where we awaken your senses on a journey of the wonderful world of coffee, learning the first steps of aroma and taste. Coffee is incredibly complex. The vast variety of beans of different origins, the processing methods and the roasting techniques used means no two beans are the same. Coffee has unique taste and aroma characteristics, varying levels of acidity and body leading to huge variances in the cup.

  • Awakening your senses
  • Coffee tasting - Understanding how we taste and smell
  • Identifying raw ingredients
  • Differentiating and identifying core tastes and aromas
  • Learning how to differentiate coffee beans according to processing methods
  • Cupping
