The perfect combination of science and roasting craft. The equipment provided is cutting edge too – you will learn a lot about roaster setup and design.

Hard to imagine a better course than this.

I have been roasting for more than 8 years. Instead of just doing my Intermediate Level, I wanted to take the chance, got to CoffeeMind and gain more scientific understanding of what I am doing each day. Morten was a great teacher! I was able to get answers to questions, I have had for a long time. I really enjoyed the conversations and discussions, we had in class. Even it might be (a bit) geeky, I am looking forward to do my Professional Level at CoffeeMind and get deeper into the physics and chemistry of roasting.

The whole experience was great. CoffeeMind has a cooperation with Kontra Coffee so the courses took place at Kontra, which was a great location to do the courses. The whole Kontra staff was so nice. Morten and Ida were great host and really taking care. Copenhagen itself was a nice experience as well. So even the week was very intense, it almost felt like a holiday and I learned so much!

Thank you very much and I am looking forward to come back for the Professional level!
