Note! This course is ideal to combine with our “Four weeks of online home training with a sensory training kit included.” We will guide you through your training and help you improve. Then you can come back for another sensory skills assessment!

This course is highly practical and does not dwell on scientific details which are more background for keeping the discussion to the point and not getting lost in fluffy concepts around coffee roasting and sensory evaluation.
