This five-day course allows you to take all of the coursework for the Coffee Taster 1 Pathway. The Foundations of Coffee serves as the introduction to all the Pathways and builds a vocabulary, both spoken and sensed, that will serve each subsequent class in any chosen course of study. The Coffee Taster Pathway is designed to develop both your palate and your coffee career, preparing you for work in evaluation and analysis with the confidence to participate in high-stakes decision making. Always in high demand, sensory experts are pushing the front lines of specialty coffee into new territory, borrowing from outside disciplines to incorporate innovative lab techniques and data tracking, while working to achieve new heights in quality.
Please note: all Foundation classes must be taken to receive a certificate.
