  • Coffee Roasting Course 24th March?

    Hi

    Over the last couple of days Ive had a few separate enquiries asking if we run Coffee Roasting Courses.

    Individual training can seem expensive, so if we can get a small group of 5 people to agree on a time and date, then commit to participate, I would be happy to offer the course at the significantly reduced price of $250.00 per person.

    We would discuss the various methods of roasting, and utilise both the 200gm baby roaster and our Has Garanti commercial roaster. Training notes would be provided and you would be able to take home some of the coffee we roast together.

    Where: Cuppacoffee, 7/282-288 Princes Hwy Sylvania (Cnr Harley St)

    When: From 1.00pm, Saturday 24th March

    If you are interested and would like to attend, or have questions or ideas about the course, please post in this thread.

    thanks
    Dennis

      Hi Kevin

      The course runs for approximately three and a half hours.

      Really, there is nothing preventing you from starting to roast your own coffee either for home or on a commercial level without any training. There are plenty of people who are satisfied with their results and never venture to attempt to learn more than they already know.

      The course is an introduction to coffee roasting and explains and demonstrates the roasting process. Just as attending a cooking class wont turn you into a master chef, nor will this course turn anyone into a master roaster. If you were to go away after the course and follow my instructions, then I would hope you would be able to obtain good results. Several people who I have trained have gone on to win medals in the Golden Bean and Sydney Royal competitions within 12 months of attendance.

      Having attended the course, I would hope that you would continue to learn from a wide variety of sources.

        Hi dennis. Thanks for your reply. I Cant wait attending your course and start roasting my own beans By the way, do you provide any notes or written materials that i can refer to later? I might be able to get my mate to attend together but have to ask him first. Please keep me updated on this. Thanks

          Hello again Kevin.

          Yes, useful reference notes are included in the course.

          However, if we cant achieve the number of participants required to make this viable, I regret that we will have to postpone or cancel.

          I would have thought there would be more interest - perhaps I was wrong. :-/

                  Hello Kevin, Lucas, Jason and Wendy.

                  First, thanks for your interest in attending this course. We really need one more person to attend to make it viable, and so, I have decided to postpone this until some future date.

                  In the meantime, may I ask that you send me your email address so that I can contact you when information becomes available.

                  Cheers and thanks again
                  Dennis

                    Hi dennis. Its kevin here again. One of my friends can join the course but not probably on 24th. Would you please organise another day for us in April?  What about other guys like lucas, wendy and jason? Are you guys ok with doing the course in april, probably after the easter holidays? Please let me know and thank you so much for your expression of interest. I thought i was the only person being interested ;D
