Green Coffee Foundation
Introduction to Coffee (recommended)
The Green Coffee Foundation course introduces basic concepts regarding the production, trade, and evaluation of green coffee. Participants will learn about the specialty coffee supply chain from farm to roaster, including cultivation, harvesting, processing, drying, shipping, storage, and delivery. Within this supply chain, learners take a closer look at the principles of coffee growing, processing, grading, trade, and portfolio management. Practical learning objectives and activities prepare the learner to conduct basic assessments of green coffee. A written exam tests theoretical knowledge based on Foundation course learning objectives.
