This is a hands-on interactive course that will explore beans from different origins, the fundamentals of roasting, and factors that impact coffee freshness. We will cover tasting coffee, flavor profiles, different types of brewing methods and brewing variables that affect taste. By the end of the course, students will be able to apply a basic understanding of the flavor profiles of coffee from different origins and different roast levels, be able to brew coffee using three different methods, and apply the attributes of grind profiles, temperature, and weight measurements to achieve better tasting coffee. Mark Peterson, owner of Black Point Coffee, has several years in the Coffee industry and is associated with the Special Coffee Association (SCA). This course's material is based on the SCA's guidelines for understanding and brewing coffee.
