Curriculum/Course outline

Control de Calidad del Café is a complete course on how to taste and grade coffee. It is a course designed for baristas, roasters and green buyers. It’s for anyone in the coffee chain directly responsible for coffee flavour. This course trains you on how to identify defective beans and flavour taints. It trains you how to set up a cupping as well as teaching you how all the important modern scoring system works. Coffee QC blows the lid off the cupping process and removes the mystery behind how professional coffee buyers and roasters manage quality. This course is Barista Hustle’s flagship tasting course and introduces a brand new set of protocols — it’s the first new coffee grading system that the coffee industry has seen in 20 years. 



What’s in Each Chapter?

The course is structured across five chapters. Chapter One teaches you how to identify common defects in coffee beans — focussing in particular on roasting taints.  

In Chapter Two Is called How To Set Up a Cupping. This critical chapter brings anyone new to the cupping process up to speed on what’s expected across the industry. It also gives more experienced cuppers a guideline on what protocols are important and how they impact the flavour in the cup. Chapter three follows on from setting up a cupping and teaches you how to taste. It looks at the physiology of how the sensor of smell, taste and touch interact and how tasting techniques like slurping from a bowl affect the flavour intensidad of each coffee you taste test. 

In Chapter 4, you learn how to score and how flavour and taste is subdivided. The course concludes in Chapter  with a detailed analysis of the modern scoring systems including the SCA Arabica Cupping Form and the Cup of Excellence Scoresheet introduced in 1999. Finally we are proud to present in the last lessons of Chapter 5, The Barista Hustle Cupping Protocol. This new 100-point scoring system is introduced here for the first time with lots of info on how to get the best out of it for your career as a coffee buyer, roaster, farmer, or barista.
