Seed to Cup, 1hr


Coffee starts its journey to your cup as a plant that then grows a cherry which will be processed and roasted before being brewed. A lot of people work to make sure that coffee makes its way all around the world for others to enjoy. In this course you can learn what happens at every part of this supply chain, and how it affects the coffee in the final cup.

Coffee contains more flavor compounds than any other beverage, making it a very complex and rewarding drink. Noticing the deeper flavors and developing a palate for coffee can be difficult.
