Workshop Coffee Defects
June 8./9th 2017
Taste and evaluate defects professionally. Sound green coffee is the prerequisite for a perfectly roasted coffee product.
Coffee is a natural product which is affected by seasonal deviations. The quality is influenced by the variety, local growing conditions, the weather, processing methods, as well as transport and storage.
The recognition of defects is essential during the quality assessment of offer and arrival samples. Fundamental knowledge brings you at eye level in the discussion with your green coffee suppliers. Learn what kind of impact green coffee defects have on your finished product. Come to the tasting table. Under the competent guidance of Carlo Delfs your sensory skills will be trained and you will find a platform to discuss about sensory impressions.
