Rp5,000,000/person. Maximum 6 persons in one class. 3 days, 4 hours each. Includes: Certificate.
A for Appreciation Class
Why coffee? How did it start? What did dancing goats have to do with it? Why is it so different and delicious now? How can it taste like berries, nuts, chocolate, or flowers?! What is a green bean? What is roasting? Why should I grind my coffee right before I want to brew it? This class will answer those questions and turn you into a coffee snob in a flash. In short, you will know everything a cool barista should.
Rp500,000/person. Maximum 10 persons in one class. 120 mins.
B for Brewing Class
“I want to brew coffee at home and impress my lover every morning.” Now, you can! This is where you will learn the meticulous art of manual brewing. How to pick the right beans, how to grind it well, and how to know the basic tools and equipments. You will also learn to brew using different methods (pourover, immersion, dripper, and such!) You’ll go out of this class as a coffee geek. Don’t be surprised if you’ll end up building your own coffee lab at home.

This introductory class to Q Grading will crown you as a coffee connoisseur.

Don’t worry, it’s not that hard. In two days, you will be able to pull a good espresso shot, steam the milk, serve a cup of cappuccino, latte, piccolo, or magic! After this class, all you need is an apron to call yourself a barista. (Oh, and some cool tattoos on your hands.)
