Singapore's first Q Robusta programme.
Q Robusta training & exam
Note: Advanced level sensory course, suitable for current Q Graders, roasters and those interested in Robusta.
The Coffee Quality Institute (CQI) launched Q Robusta in cooperation with the Ugandan Coffee Development Authority (UCDA). Robusta coffee is native to Uganda, and UCDA and CQI aim to improve the quality of robusta as well as train coffee professionals in the standards for Fine Robusta.
The handbook and standards for robusta are similar to arabica, except that the qualities and characteristics have been adjusted. The criteria to achieve Fine Robusta requires an 80 or above on the UCDA cupping form for robusta, as well as the proper green defect count to be considered.
