About the Slurp Fast! Coffee Course

Slurp Fast! is more than just a course…it’s a multimedia experience that gives you exactly what you need to start in the coffee industry.

This course will help you learn about coffee the way you should – with activities, workbooks and memory sheets that help you make practical use of the information as you learn.

In this course we cover how coffee is grown, processed and roasted...but this isn't just dry knowledge. All of those steps radically change the results you get in the cup. To successfully work with coffee, you need to understand those variables.

Maybe you've asked yourself:

  • What coffee should you purchase?
  • Why does my client ask for certain coffee processing (honey, natural, carbonic maceration)?
  • How can you tell if your coffee is good?
  • How should you roast your coffee?
  • Why does a roasted coffee taste bad?
  • How can you work with a coffee grower to get the best coffee?

Slurp Fast! gives you the answers to those questions so you can discuss coffee confidently with people in the coffee industry.

We also discuss how coffee changes the lives of the millions of people who are involved in growing it and selling it. Your customers are going to want information about the people who grow the coffee, and you need to be prepared to inform them.

We go through the details of coffee cuppings (tastings) and why it's so essential for you to understand the basic characteristics of coffee. In order to choose which coffees to sell to which customers, you need to understand coffee cupping.
