The professional coffee training programmes run by Coffee Nexus help people develop their skills and realise their potential.   They are primarily based around the following areas:

  • Coffee Cupping and Sensory Skills
  • Green Coffee Quality
  • Sourcing and Procurement
  • Coffee Roasting and Roast Profiling
  • Roastery Quality Assurance

For many areas of work in the coffee industry coffee cupping remains a core skill, and for this reason it is one of our most popular training courses.  Training in topics surrounding green coffee quality and purchasing, along with roast profiling are also popular and are core skills for those who own their own coffee roastery.
