Education Update

We had a great success this week with Barista Level 1 & 2 taking place (many thanks to Paul Meikle-Janney). It was the first time Barista Level 2 was run in Ireland and we were delighted to have a full house.

Just a note that there is a change of data on Grinding and Brewing Level1 and Advanced Brewing will now take place on May 31st instead of May 30th (there are a small number of spaces available for both).

These will be the last 2 courses of this years Coffee Diploma, and we will release dates for forthcoming courses in the fall.

Edu-mac-ation Up-date

Last month we had a full house for the first two modules of the SCAE Coffee Diploma – namely Green Coffee Lvl1 and Sensory Lvl1 – delivered with aplomb by John Thompson from Coffee Nexus.

Now is a good time to remind you that Roasting Lvl1 (the first time delivered in Ireland) as well as Grinding and Brewing, and Advanced Brewing will be delivered on April 11th and 12th.

Many places have already been booked, so if you are interested get your name in soon.

BREW-HA-HA

March will be an incredible month for coffee lovers as the “Brew Ha Ha” weekend sees some of the most eagerly awaited coffee events coincide on one big weekend at the Twisted Pepper on Dublin’s Middle Abbey Street.

Coffee lovers from as far away as Russia, Scandinavia and even Australia convened on Dublin for last year’s event and this year will be even more equally enticing to coffee enthusiasts everywhere.

First up on the Friday 30th March is the Irish Brewers Cup where we seek to find our national representative who will follow up on Keith O’Sullivan’s victory at last years World Championships. This event pits some of the countries finest baristas in a battle to find the most skilled filter brewer and promises to be a hotly contested event.

Saturday sees Tamper Tantrum Live return to the stage at the Twisted Pepper in what is one the coffee industry’s premier education-focused conferences with a unique urban twist.

Last year’s speakers included World Barista champions, Espresso Machine innovators and Coffee bloggers; tickets sold out in a matter of days. This years line-up is a tight-lipped secret at the moment but is guaranteed to be just as prestigious.

Sunday is a double header with proceedings opening with the Irish Cup Tasters Championships. This event requires participants to spot the odd coffee out of three on eight separate occasions to determine who’s pallet is the most refined. Irelands representative in the past two years, David Walsh, has gone on to finish second at the World Championships two years running.

Following that is the inaugural Hasbean World Home-Barista Championships, aimed at crowning the finest home-barista there is. Amateur contestants will bring their own equipment and present to a panel of professional judges to determine who will be the first ever Hasbean World Barista Champion.

Entry is free on Friday and Sunday but Saturdays even is a ticket-only affair and can be purchased here for €50 which includes lunch and filter coffees for all attendees.

This is one of the most exciting events on the international coffee calendar and is a unique opportunity for coffee lovers to experience the best of what the specialty coffee industry has to offer.
