    When: October 4th and 5th 2008
    Where: Coffee Academy - Melbourne

    Palate Training & Sensory Analysis of Coffee

    Two day intensive workshop for coffee professionals, roasters, baristas and serious amateurs who wish to develop their knowledge and skills in coffee analysis using sensory analysis techniques developed for the wine industry.

    Designed by Lindsay Corby, full time lecturer in Wine Production Department of Agricultural Science, Latrobe University, Jill Adams Training and Development Manager of the Coffee Academy.

    Day one
    The focus is on training your palate to identify different tastes and flavours found in coffee:
    1. Sugars, acids, tannins and bitterness tasted separately then in combination
    2. Un-roasted coffee components
    3. Roasted coffee components
    4. Combinations of 1,2&3
    All compounds will be tasted in water and in coffee.

    Day two
    A range of roasted coffees will be tasted to highlight the effects of plant variety, processing
    techniques, region and the roaster on coffee flavour profiles:
    1. Different Arabica plant varieties from the same place
    2. Different processing techniques
    3. Different regions/countries
    4. Same coffee roasted differently.
    5. Growing and processing faults/taints
    6. Robusta / different countries and processing

            Michelle,
            I mentioned Sydney to the Coffee Academy last time and it will happen, we just dont know the logistics of when and where... I would guess (and it really is a guess) that early in the new year might be likely as the schooling comittment from Angliss and LaTrobe would be at its lowest.

            YeeZa,
            as Chris said, you should love it. I doubt anyone who loves coffee could go without learning at least a couple of gems for the weekend... and its fun too boot!

                    Nah, the intimidation is just in your own head.

                    Its a well designed course that focuses on "what you can taste" and exploring your own palate (ie: there are no right/wrong answers!)

                    So dont be scared, be excited, its a great experience!

                      you are probably right, but I always feel like such a novice on this site
                      hopefully this takes me to the next level.

                        haha yeah, if its any consolation, I just noticed that Im approaching 1000 posts and I still feel like a novice. Its one of those things though that the more you learn the more you realise theres so much more to learn - I guess thats the coffee-hook.

                        Not that Im complaining ;D
