Lunch will be provided upon completion of the day’s activities. After class students are encouraged to explore Dubai’s incredible coffee culture and take part in the events surrounding the world of coffee.
Be prepared to experience Cup of Excellence. Students in the mini-SET will cup many different coffees, processes, and cultivars. Students will practice the logistics and cupping protocol of a COE cupping and take the same exam that CoE uses to select their National Jury Members.
At the beginning of the class, students will receive a COE cupping spoon along with other fun gifts. At the end of the class, they will receive a certificate of completion signed by the instructor. Within three weeks’ time, students will receive an email containing a report with the results of their testing. The information in the report will show students how well they calibrated with the group along with unique insights into their cupping habits.
This experience is intended to immerse students in the culture of the Cup of Excellence. To improve students cupping and sensory evaluation skills. All while spending time surrounded by and learning with other members of the global coffee community. This is the best way to learn and calibrate your sensory skills.
