Description

This is a blended learning class, you will need to select your preferred Virtual classroom session (Theory) above and In-person session (practical) when completing the registration form.

Roasting Foundation gives the learner an understanding of the roasting process, including the physical changes that take place during the process and how to control sensory aspects of the coffee by roasting light or dark. Learners will also gain an understanding of the basic structure of the roasting machine, general maintenance, and fire prevention.

Practical learning objectives and activities prepare the learner to follow instructions, given by the trainer, for three different roasts and record relevant data and observations per roast using a suitable roast log. A written exam tests theoretical knowledge based on Foundation course learning objectives.
