Brandon Bir workshop
Last year at Golden Bean Australia/NZ we invited Brandon Bir from Crimson Cup Coffee Ohio to attend the event. The day before Golden Bean judging commenced we ran a sensory analysis course with Brandon, whose experience as an SCA AST and SCA campus inspector was a valuable well of knowledge for roasters to tap into. We had a great response from this workshop and we’ve decided to run a similar workshop at this year’s Golden Bean Australia/NZ.
Organising this kind of workshop before Golden Bean builds upon the education aspect of Golden Bean, one of the valuable reasons for roasters to attend. It is also a great way for roasters to take a break from being behind the roaster and get to experience a fun week with like-minded people and also learn a few things.
This year Brandon will be leading another workshop exploring the coffee triangulations of the world.
This workshop will greatly benefit those interested in taking the Q-Grader exam. You will not only explore the 4 Q-Grader tests but will build upon the basic understanding of cupping protocols, the coffee flavour wheel, and differences in coffee profiles due to processing, variety, and/or region. In one short day, we will taste our way through Central and South America, Africa and Asia.
Part sensory science, part history, and lots of tasting, this workshop is for coffee professionals that want to develop calibration skills and be positioned to make better informed purchasing decisions.
Lunch will be provided by Golden Bean Australia/NZ.
This workshop will be held on Tuesday 19th of November 2019. If you are interested in expanding your knowledge on Q-Grader tests, more tickets are available now via our Eventbrite ->
Tickets will be limited so we do suggest booking now before spots fill up.
