The study of Brewing introduces you to the different ways of brewing coffee, from Batch Brewing to Chemex, Siphon, Clever Dripper, Kalita, French Press and more. In addition, this module allows you to get hands-on and learn to analyze your grind profile, match your grind to your brewing method and to scientifically measure coffee strength and chart a coffee’s extraction.

Brewing can be studied at three different levels:

  1. Foundation introduces the beginner to the different ways of brewing coffee from Batch Brewing to Hand Pour.
  2. Intermediate Level 1 is very much a hands-on workshop where you will learn to analyse your grind profile, match your grind to your brewing method and to scientifically measure coffee strength and chart a coffee’s extraction.
  3. Professional Level 2 takes the scientific knowledge a stage further, covering the impact of temperature on brewing, acidity levels during the brewing process, the impact of water quality on coffee brewing and flavor and an understanding of how to chart coffee and brew within a given extraction percentage.
