Course Catalogue

 
As part of our mission to create cutting edge coffee people from seed to cup, we offer a variety of labs, classes, and seminars taught by our team of coffee specialists. Some advanced classes have prerequisites; see lab details for more information.

Advanced Registration is required. Because of hands-on exercises and limited availability, classes fill up quickly; space is available on a first-come, first-serve basis. Wait lists are available for full labs. Please note that some classes have required prerequisites.

If you are registered for a lab and cannot attend, please be considerate of your fellow coffee lovers and cancel your registration so that your seat may be filled by another participant. Lab registration fees will be refunded for cancellations received at least 48 hours in advance.

Our weekly Tastings at 10, held on Fridays at all of our Regional Training Centers, are free and open to the public.

Have a question? Feel free to contact us.
