Brewing courses are aimed at baristas who want to learn the manual coffee-making methods which are becoming increasingly popular among coffee enthusiasts.
Participants will develop their abilities to control every variable in the brewing process, create a cup that’s exactly suited to one’s preferences, and highlight the unique character of the coffee.
The course allows students to identify, through coffee tasting, cup flavors and those defects due to low quality or bad roasting.
This module introduces the beginner to the different ways of brewing coffee, from Chemex and siphon to clever dripper, cold brew and French press.
The module will focus on the most crucial technical and numerical requirements for each brewing method, from coarse grind setting, to water temperature, to different filters features, to time of extraction.
The course follows the Coffee Skills Program SCA modules. The examination can be taken at the end of the class and paid on site at the Coffee Studio. “Introduction to Coffee is a recommended (but not mandatory) pre-requisite module.
