Whether you’re completely new to roasting, looking for a new challenge or already have some experience, we convey our years of roasting experience in our practical training courses. At our training centre in Emmerich in north-west Germany, we offer intensive training and support to small groups of up to eight people.
Here, our students can learn, roast, test, try and discuss coffee. Different PROBATONE roasters are used depending on the training content. Our trainers are certified by the Speciality Coffee Association of Europe (SCAE).
The first day of this two-day workshop begins with an introduction to green coffee, followed by insights into the theory of coffee roasting. This focuses in particular on the various Probat roasting procedures, along with the fundamental physical and chemical changes that take place during the roasting process. Afterwards, participants will have the opportunity to roast their own coffee beans under expert guidance.
The second day of the workshop focuses on developing roast profiles and the way that time and colour affect how aroma develops. Participants roast coffee varieties from various countries under expert guidance to achieve the desired result as defined by time and colour. Here, the emphasis is on the specific characteristics of the individual varieties. This is followed by a French press tasting, in which the different results and the fundamental principles of individual factors are explained.
It is also possible to book two additional modules that build on the knowledge gained in the training course. Module 1 focuses on creating blends, while module 2 offers a detailed explanation of standard cupping methods using previously roasted coffee.
Alongside our detailed group training at our headquarters in Emmerich, you can also book individual training sessions. We would be happy to adapt these sessions to your personal needs and wishes. The courses convey all the important basic information about coffee roasting to you and/or your staff. Simply get in touch so that we can create your own customised training session.
