Sensory // Level 1 // Coffee Evaluation & Analysis
(Private Dates Available)
ONA Coffee's Sensory Courses are designed for anyone who wants to learn more about how to taste, evaluate, and compare their coffees. No tasting experience is required, as this course will take you on a journey through exploring the flavours and textures that come with our coffee!
One of the primary ways that we assess coffee is through a process called cupping. Cupping is the coffee industry's method of evaluating and purchasing coffees with minimal bias. It is also a great way to understand and experience the raw potential of different types of coffees. It involves measuring and weighing out coffee and hot water into bowls and tasting the brewed coffee roasted specifically for that method.
Over this 1.5 hour session, we will explore
How the cupping process works
A systematic way to taste and evaluate coffees
The differences between different styles of coffee eg. origin, processing, variety
With the groups favourite coffee being brewed as a pour-over to showcase how the flavours translate into the final experience.
This session is very relaxed and fun and can accommodate up to 8 people.
For larger groups see private bookings or get in contact with firstname.lastname@example.org for more details.
Non - English Courses - Our courses are primarily facilitated in English, however our team may be able to arrange a private session of 2 or more in alternative languages. Please contact us at email@example.com to discuss further.
